Lagoon 77 Catamaran, Mana Kai, Launched in Bordeaux!

Lagoon 77 catamaranAs one of the top-selling brokers for ALL large catamaran brands and luxury crewed yachts of 60ft+ worldwide, Catamaran Guru provides innovative ownership programs to substantially reduce the costs of ownership. This Lagoon Seventy7, launched in Bordeaux, France, last week is no exception. The owner contracted us to help him in negotiations with the manufacturer and to help structure the crewed charter management of his yacht.

Stephen arrived to very cold weather in Bordeaux to do the final commissioning and hand-over of hull number two of the Lagoon 77 to the new owners. She is named Mana Kai, 'Spirit of the Ocean' in Hawaiian Language. The owners are ecstatic and they have good reason to be. It is a very good looking yacht and the sheer scale and dimensions of this catamaran puts it firmly in the super yacht category.

Owners of 8 Lagoon Catamarans Meet Up

8 lagoon owners meet up to share experiences and love of their boatsA few of our Annapolis friends are Seven Seas Cruising Association Commodores. They are leaders and fun fanatics about cruising. Recently, they had an awesome idea to meet up with other Lagoon owners in Georgetown on Stocking Island in The Bahamas. 

What a great idea! They had a variety of Lagoon cats show up. Here's a summary from S/V Enjoy's blog of the great (and a little crazy) ideas they shared and how they celebrated being Lagoon owners. You can follow S/V Enjoy on Facebook.

Lagoon Catamaran Parts / Service

Testimonial from a Monohull Guy Turned Catamaran Owner

Bailey Catamaran TestimonialsCatamaran or monohull? What are the pros and cons? We hear these questions so often! Well, we changed to a catamaran after living aboard our monohull for 15 years while cruising around the world and there are so many reasons why. We wrote an article about why we changed to a catamaran and reading this, might give you some insight into why a catamaran is, in our opinion the future of sailing. 

The Baileys have also changed from a monohull and are now the proud owners of a Lagoon 400 catamaran. Here's what he had to say:

"I discovered Catamaran Guru on the Web. I found the site to be very helpful and up-to-date with a lot of information on catamarans that helped an old monohull guy like me get comfortable with a cat and the differences to monohulls."
