- Competitive price

- Liked the layout
- The sailing rig is at the performance end
- Dealing with TMG was good
- Advised from the charter company
- Always meant for charter so it was a business decision
Dealing with TMG Yachts
“The entire TMG Yachts team were really good. In the initial stages, John gave great advice and helped spec the boat, looking back it was all very valuable,” Mike Pain.
- Good experience in general
- TMG Yachts help set up charter
- Delivery and handover with Rowan was excellent
- The boat was in great condition on delivery
- Really good after sales support
On delivery of Ticketyboo to the Whitsundays, the Pain’s were able to do an initial shakedown and got to know the boat a bit…
Sailing through some really challenging conditions the boat performed incredibly well.
Through 3 metre swells and 35kts of wind, Ticketyboo handled herself and the crew didn’t feel at all unsafe.
This BRAND NEW Lagoon 40 is the first of its kind in the Whitsundays and is now ready for charter!
You can charter this sensational Lagoon 40 through Whitsundays Escape with pick up in Airlie Beach.
This Lagoon 40 can sleep up to ten. Four double cabins, two bathrooms and the saloon table converts to another double. All cabins feature plenty of hatches and ample headroom.
If you are interested in buying your own Lagoon 40 this may be an awesome TRY BEFORE YOU BUY opportunity, seeing how she sails and what it would be like to live aboard.
The brand new Lagoon 40 sailing catamaran has superb living space and the rear cockpit is spacious and comfortable, with built-in dining and bench seat. On the foredeck you will find a sunbed for extra lounging space.
The saloon dining is large and roomy as well, with beautiful interior styling for cruising in luxury. And of course it boasts plenty of refrigeration space.
Rigged for simple and easy sail-handling, but performing equally well under motor alone, the Lagoon 40 is set to become a new favourite for bareboat holidays in the Whitsundays. Very comfortable for 4 couples, 2 families and large groups.

“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.
