Any Lagoon 400 Catamaran Review will inevitably focus on the comfort and luxury of the sailing vessel. This focus is entirely warranted as the 400 was specifically designed for sailors looking for a home out on the water.
It’s not much of a vacation if the boat is too cramped or passengers are falling over each other, but at the same time, the 400 invites social activity and conversation, almost creating the illusion that the entire vessel is a floating family rec room.
The 400’s purpose is to provide passengers with an easy, anti-stress environment. The cabins and lounge area are spacious and adorned with comfortable furnishings while the galley is fully equipped for cooking requirements.
Plenty of storage space is available, so there is no need to worry about those important items or things that are solely for pleasure would need to be left behind.
Continuing with the anti-stress theme, the Lagoon 400 has designed a vessel that is very simple to sail. Powering the vessel up or down is a task that can be undertaken by even to the most inexperienced skipper.
From the controls to the sails, the 400 makes skippering this vessel as pleasure rather than a chore.The sails are rigged with a unique line system that makes lowering and raising them a piece of cake.
The interior of the 400 is all whitewashed walls and light-colored wood, both of which amplify the light from the fixtures and the natural light streaming in from the windows, making the below deck areas bright and airy.
Available in 4 different layouts, the 400 can accommodate any family or group size seeking to sail in a comfortable vessel.
The Lagoon 400 has taken measures to create more headroom and freedom of movement for passengers on deck. The cockpit is designed for the skipper’s safety, comfort, and access to other passengers with a sliding glass door that slides open to reveal the saloon. The bridge deck saloon is shaded due to the design of the vertical wraparound ports.
Lagoon 400 VS Lagoon 380
At first glance, the 400 and the 380 look identical, unless they are side by side. The 400 is significantly larger than the 380 with additional space added to everything on the 400. This extra room also includes headroom, as opposed to the decidedly less height-friendly 380. Essentially, the 400 is a widened and expanded version of the 380 as almost every other aspect is the same on both vessels except the sizing.
Lagoon 400 VS Lagoon 400 S2
The 400s2 is basically the 400 with minor changes that improve comfort and enlarge certain aspects of the vessel. The most obvious changes are that the types or beds have been changed to make them bigger and extra cabinetry was installed in the galley to solve the storage problem presented in the original 400 design.
