Lagoon 40 owners Caroline and Sven are currently saying 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
“So excited to have finally taken delivery of our Lagoon 46 in Manly, Queensland yesterday. Rowan McMahon from TMG took us on a windy delivery trip up from the Gold Coast yesterday with lots of smiles onboard. Very happy with our clears, solar arch, Weber BBQ platform and tender setup. We can’t thank TMG enough for their support in getting Arena ready for our family sailing adventures.” – Dean Robertson, Lagoon 46 Owner.
“We love our Lagoon, we’ve been out in some pretty tough conditions and it’s always brought us home safe, it’s fantastic under sail and great at anchor so we absolutely love our boat.
Our favourite thing about our boat is the places it can take us, we get to see a lot of the east coast that most people can only imagine to see and to be able to access it with a boat it’s just fantastic.” – Matt Doncan – Lagoon 400S2, Espresso
“Greg and Sue Harding created and monitor the Lagooned in Oz Facebook Community and are vital and enthusiastic Lagoon owners.
The pair have owned numerous Lagoons and love their current Lagoon 440. – Greg and Sue Harding” – Lagoon 440, Blue Pointer
There is more enjoyment in a sailboat in that the enjoyment is in the journey as much as it’s in the destination. That to me makes it a totally different experience.
The advantage of a flybridge to me is the fact you are that much higher off the surface of the water, you can get better vision all around, a greater sense of being on-top of the whole thing and I do enjoy being out in the sun most of the time.” – Jeff D’Albora – Lagoon 52F, Infinity II
Mark Rolle envisioned a life on the sea and when the opportunity presented itself he didn’t hold back.
After working hard for years Mark sold his business and decided that there was more to life than work. He always thought of owning a boat, he had always loved the ocean and when the opportunity presented itself he took it.
Two Lagoon owners from opposite sides of the world in isolation onboard their Lagoon. While Greg and Sue make jokes about their state during lockdown in Queensland Australia Mick and Poppy try to stay healthy with fun and innovative activities onboard including Tour De Trim and Wimbledon on Water in Malta.
Theo Kuiters shares his incredible adventures onboard his Lagoon 380 and how he made owning his dream boat a reality.
“You can do anything you want in life as long as you help other people get what they want”, says Theo.
Liz states, “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.”
“We looked around quite a bit, and investigated the opposition! The 42ft is the right size for us, and she has a good feel when under sail. The combination of layout and space was just what we were looking for. Importantly, the Lagoon 42 sails well short handed. The 42 is a very, very nice boat. I’d be hard pressed to fault it,” said Drew.
