Current owners recently completed 7 months in the Bahamas and have purchased a sailing cat and plan to sail across the Atlantic.
This is the coveted Owners’ Version with a beam-to-beam aft master suite with en-suite head and shower and a California king size bed. There is a forward port guest bedroom with head and shower and a forward starboard office, plus a large walk-in pantry. What also sets this boat apart is the custom 11’x13’ flybridge hard top that supports 1,000 watts of solar and a 10,000 watt gen-set.
She is fully equipped as a live aboard vessel and ready to cruise another season with her new owners.
Also a perfect boat to do The Great Loop!
The 43’s hulls are a semi-displacement design with a deep forefoot to reduce pounding. A chine above the waterline displaces spray. Lagoon tooled the hull mold to increase chine on the hull’s inside and displace water hitting the platform between the hulls.
The hulls are built with solid glass below the waterline and balsa core above. To ensure their integrity, Lagoon uses a countermold, which is a secondary solid fiberglass liner bonded to each hull interior from the first bulkhead aft to the shaft exit and integral with the engine beds, and that increases overall hull stiffness.
A great feature of the 43PC are the long keels that protects the props, and the 43 can actually sit on her bottom if needed.
There is plenty of on-deck stowage for toys. A compartment forward of the house is nearly 5 feet deep and can easily absorb dive tanks, a dinghy, an outboard, fenders and lines. Two additional forepeak lockers and two lockers on the afterdeck should help keep the 43 self-sufficient for weeks. Another compartment in the cockpit sole contains a liferaft locker.
The Lagoon 43’s cockpit incorporates a table that sits eight for meals, and a settee wraps around the cockpit that seats 12. The cockpit flows nicely into the saloon through a large sliding door. It’s difficult to determine where one space ends and the other begins. Cool breezes fill the interior, and sunlight opens the space. The saloon remains cool thanks to the cabin top’s overhang over the windows. Vertical windows provided a superior line of sight, with the only blind spot behind the galley.
This 43 PC has a lower and upper helm! Not only are lower helms useful when the weather turns foul, they are a great air-conditioned place to drive when it is blazing hot outside.
The galley includes a front-loading 12-volt refrigerator and a top-load unit, which also provides good counter space. Stowage is everywhere, including a three-quarters height pantry, a bottle locker, a pot and pan drawer, and a dish locker. A four-burner range is under an opening hatch for added ventilation.
One of the 43’s most impressive features is her after cabin, which spans both hulls. The berth is in the middle, where standing headroom is not required. Ports surround the area, and an opening hatch is over the foot of the berth. There are his-and-her hanging lockers as well as a third locker, which will be great for linens. The head is split, with a sink and MSD to port, as well as a shower, if needed. To starboard is a commodious shower stall with sink. The head is at the foot of the stairs to the stateroom’s private entrance, which means a shower after a day at the beach won’t require trenching water through the interior.
Additional stowage is in the passageway, which also houses the AC/DC panel. The panel needs to be protected by a door or recessed deeper so people passing by won’t hit the breakers.
This is the perfect island cruiser. She is a very well equiped Lagoon 43 PC Power Catamaran featuring a custom conversion with one large owners cabin, a forward guest cabin and a convertible forward walk-in pantry that lends itself to a second guest cabin.
She has been very well maintained with low engine hours at approximately 1800 hours on each Volvo Penta engine (285HP).
Some of the key features are:
* Ample solar (1000w),
* 10kw Cummins Onan generator,
* 32 Gph Rainman Watermaker,
* Presto hydraulic davit system,
* Modern sun shades around the salon and full cockpit enclosure.
* Shallow 4' draft allows her to navigate areas where monohulls and power boats generally are unable to do.
The shallow 4ft draft and the protective keels (for the 4 blade props and rudders) make life easy in the shallow waters of the Bahamas, the ICW or the historic Canadian locks in Quebec. The low 19ft overhead clearance allows you to cruise through most of the ICW draw bridges and canal overheads with ease.
