The process of acquiring a Lagoon catamaran, from the first visit to delivery, involves several important steps. Here is a general overview of the process:
Research and First Visit:
Begin by researching the Lagoon catamaran model that best suits your needs and budget. Contact a Lagoon dealership or an authorized seller to arrange a first visit. During this visit, you can explore the catamaran, ask questions, and discuss details.
Model Selection and Customization:
Once you've identified the model that suits you, you can discuss customization options, equipment, and special arrangements you desire.
Getting a Quote:
Request a detailed quote for the catamaran, including the cost of the vessel, customization options, taxes, transportation fees, etc.
If you plan to finance your purchase, ensure you have an adequate financing solution in place.
Once the quote is accepted, and financing is arranged, you will sign a purchase contract. This contract outlines the terms of the transaction, including the price, delivery timelines, and warranties.
Production and Construction:
If the catamaran is not in stock, it is typically custom-built for you. The construction process can take several months.
Inspections and Sea Trials:
Before delivery, the catamaran undergoes quality inspections and sea trials to ensure it is in perfect condition.
You may receive training on maintenance and the operation of the catamaran, especially if you are new to boating.
Once the catamaran is ready, you will schedule the delivery date. The seller or dealership will hand over the keys and accompany you on board for a final inspection.
Registration and Insurance:
Ensure the catamaran is properly registered and insured in accordance with local laws.
Launching and Sailing:
After delivery, you can finally launch your catamaran and start sailing.
Each step of the process requires close communication with SAILOÉ, as well as careful planning to ensure a smooth experience. Feel free to ask questions throughout the process to ensure you understand every aspect of acquiring your Lagoon catamaran.
