38 South is a 1999 Lagoon 380 4 cabin pre-owned Catamaran. It has been our floating home for 3 months of the year for the last 4 years while we have been travelling from Grenada to Australia via the USA. The smallest of the Lagoon range, the amazing 380 holds the record for the largest number of cruising catamarans built worldwide now over 800. This used Catamaran is easy to handle and can comfortably be sailed by one person. Halyards and almost all lines coming back to the helm making sail trimming and handling a breeze. The 380 is very comfortable both at sea and at anchor and most of all is fun to live aboard. This 4 cabin version offers two shared heads and maximizes accommodation. Since the first model rolled of the line, the basic configuration has not changed much over the years making these pre-owned catamarans an attractive and valuable proposition. Light is the key on the Lagoon 380 with vertical saloon windows making all areas bright and inviting. The helm station with its upgraded soft upholstered double helm seat is comfortable for those relaxing cruises. Visibility from the helm station is excellent. Having the engines remote from the cabins provides additional soundproofing and having propulsion aft of the rudders gives greater performance to the twin blade folding propellers. Direct access to the cockpit from the galley makes for easy living and entertaining. This is a serious entry level cruising catamaran and probably the most successful contemporary cruising cat currently on the market
The hulls are just wide enough to fit 2 double berths in each hull. the rear cabin being larger and a queen size bed. 4 couples can enjoy complete privacy while cruising together. The main Saloon is on the bridge deck between the hulls its layout makes it seem larger than it is. with the sliding door and window between the cockpit and saloon it gives an open entertaining area and no-one is excluded. The flip over bar above the sink brings both entertaining areas together. The Vertical Saloon windows give wrap around views of the outside
The galley has twin stainless steel sinks, a two-burner gas cooktop with oven. The Standard Lagoon fridge with the engine driven cold plate has been upgraded to a CF80 electric Fridge/Freezer. add to this a second portable fridge under the Nav Station that can be used as addition freezer space or a drinks fridge depending on your need. ample storage under the settee cupboards with additional storage space in the Stbd hull passageway.
