The Lagoon 380 is a Classic Catamaran.
The stand out fact about the Lagoon 380 is that they have sold so many. These catamarans are great value for money. The Lagoon 380 is a clever compromise on volume versus performance.
Lagoon has delivered over 750 380's during the production lifetime. She is a proven blue water catamaran, a sturdy, safe boat. She holds her value well on the 2nd hand market. She's an economical catamaran that is comfortable and has an excellent level of performance. A reliable, solidly built boat that is roomy for her size.
Lagoon's signature vertical windows mean that you get the maximum space possible inside the boat for her length. Open up the double sliding doors and you have a decent sized area up top and the forward windows open right up to let the breeze flow through the boat at anchor.
You can expect to sail at 6 to 9 knots in a decent breeze. You'll probably be pointing at 50-55 degrees to true and doing 5 knots. Stick the leeward engine to get the speed up and head 10-15° or so higher. Off the wind, she's a great little mover! You will see the low teens in decent conditions from time to time.
Bridgedeck clearance is good and the sail plan will happily cover you from anything from 9 knots of wind to 35. You should be averaging 7 knots giving you 150 nm a day- perfectly acceptable for safe long distance cruising.
The running rigging is well thought out for short-handed sailing. With a dedicated winch for the main halyard, she´s easy to handle on your own. Lagoon has over spec´d the standing rigging on this boat.
The Twin 27 hp. Volvos are more than enough to power you through the chop. Cruising speed with one engine is around 5 and a half knots, using around 2.5 litres per hour. Stick the other engine on and you will hit 7 knots comfortably, with 8 knots at Full Steam Ahead. With twin engines maneuvering and docking is a breeze.
