“It’s fast if you sail it well. In those first few days, we were averaging 10-15kts which is what gave us the advantage.” If anyone says a “Lagoon is just a floating apartment” or “doesn’t sail well” they are incorrect. – Lagoon 450F “Aphrodite,” Class B ARC winner.

Mike and Linda took delivery of their new Lagoon 46 in Les Sables d’Olonne. They discuss why Lagoon, why the 46, and why European delivery, as well as what their experience of the handover was like with TMG. “We would highly recommend TMG as a boat broker for Lagoon, as well as Lagoon, great boat, we’ve loved sailing her,” says Linda.
“The handover with TMG went without a hitch. We had a very warm welcome and nice introduction to a jet-lagged John Cowpe. Thereafter, John Gamlin spent time aboard answering questions and helping to ensure the sail rigging was accurate and in good shape. Overall, we were extremely pleased with the handover from TMG.” – Shannon and Paul.
“Jenny and I have to thank everyone, during our elongated gestation period, for not only your exceptional support but also your friendship. So a big thank you to TMG for delivering on all their undertakings.”
Buying a catamaran and deciding to wrap up your life on land to sail the world is a life-changing decision, one made a little harder when caught up amongst the pandemic and uncertainty it caused.
So we turned to new Lagoon owners Ian and Jackie who put together an incredible story to give you the reality of what this experience was really like for them.
Pierre Skinner, an Aussie Lagoon owner answers what his favourite thing about his boat is and what he would say to anyone who is thinking about buying a catamaran.
This liveaboard Lagoon Catamaran owner from Denmark loved Australia so much that he wanted to share his world trip sailing stories with us.
Kerry and Bryn Wellington own a Lagoon 450, Nautilus and have been sailing the East Coast of Australia onboard over the last few years. They love the volume of their catamaran and the ability to store all their toys including kitesurfing, diving and paddleboarding gear.
Lagoon 40 owners Caroline and Sven are currently sailing the world after recently picking up Kwilena in France, “We had no idea that we would like living onboard full-time this much. For now home really is where our anchor drops and we cannot imagine going back to a normal life. We are definitely infected with the travel bug.”
Matt and Lanaia Donkin own a 40ft Lagoon, Espresso and liveaboard in Australia. This Canadian couple has loved their on-water adventure of the East Coast, especially their annual trips to the Whitsundays for the Lagoon Escapade. The Donkins discuss why they love their Lagoon including performance, comfort, stability and space.
“We highly recommend TMG. Rowan at TMG was responsive, professional and patient at every turn during this process, from selection of boat options (Lagoon 450S) prior to purchase, all the way through handover of the boat in France.” Karen, Lagoon 450S.
“Through our travels, we’ve met other Lagoon 42 owners who bought their boat through other brokers (overseas)… You don’t know how good you’ve got it until you meet someone who got much less. A big thank you! Everything we wanted on the boat was delivered. Everything works & we were shown how it works. Any failures are ours due lack of familiarity or faulty memory.” – Liz and Rob – Lagoon 42, Bilby
Fourth time Lagoon owner John Pruim has just become the first Lagoon 50 owner in Australia!!! “Lagoon allows you to go from a to b safely, easily and reliably. There is a sense of comfort and space, perfect for being a house on the water…” Says John. “The team at The Multihull Group will work with you to ensure you get just the set up you desire…” – John Pruim – Lagoon 50, Themis
“”Lagoons are boldly angular in shape, and we thought that was fantastic. It creates that space inside and looks great on the outside. And the sailing performance for a production catamaran … is very very good.
When we arrived in Les Sables-d’Olonne John had this rockstar entrance… surreal does not even begin to describe how it felt.”
” – Aaron and Lara Jones – Lagoon 42, Sabella
“A big tick to TMG… They’ve been fantastic with their support, if we’ve had any issues we get in touch with them and they go out of their way to help us so they’ve made buying this boat in Europe such a pleasant experience and yeah, I’ll give them a 10 out of 10, it’s been great… If you’re going to buy a Lagoon buy it from TMG.
” – Liz and Rob – Lagoon 42, Bilby
“It’s very very easy, so much space, we just had 4 couples for 5 days, it was very chilled out and relaxed.
The flybridge is such a big beautiful place with a view, its elevated and we put permanent clears around ours so you can use it anytime, day or night, windy or raining, it doesn’t matter. You can sit up there have lunch, have dinner. We call it the first class lounge, you can’t go wrong.” – Anthony and Seryn Ryan – Lagoon 630MY, Antics
These Lagoon 40 owners recently took delivery, “We decided to stick to our schedule and pick up our Lagoon 40 in Les Sables-d’Olonne in early March despite the uncertainty surrounding the current worldwide pandemic and the lockdown in France (curfew in France is 7 pm).”
The incredible story of a young family that left Cape Town, South Africa to sail the world… It has been the biggest adventure of our lives. We say it is a “bucket list adventure being checked off one experience at a time”.
“I couldn’t fault the TMG network and what we were able to do and how everyone was easy to get on with. The actual handover period… was fantastic. We sat on the boat for the first day and went through everything. It was a great learning experience, and then out sailing the next day. Making sure everything worked properly. It was a fantastic thing to do and I can’t speak highly enough about that actual process.” Paul Brown – Lagoon 42
