Lagoon 42 TPI Owner's Manual

Shortly after we purchased Lucey Blue in December 2009, we went in search of the holy grail....a copy of the Lagoon 42 TPI Owner's Manual!

After Google-ing, Yahoo-ing and even contacting Lagoon in France and TPI in Rhode Island, Nick resorted to pleas on various forums such as Multihulls4us, Cruisers Forum and the Lagoon Catamaran Owners Group on Yahoo.

Graham, on Vinga III (in the Caribbean) answered one of these pleas and very generously made us a photocopy of his 89 page Owner's Manual and sent it to us in Australia.

Nick spent a couple of fun-filled hours scanning in this document today and we have uploaded it to Google documents, so that the other approximately 50 Lagoon 42 TPI owners (or prospective purchasers) can easily have access to it.


Check it out here:

A huge thank you goes to Graham. We really appreciate your help, and hope to meet you some day!

PS. Having gone to these lengths to obtain this document, we then met Ian (of Skipper's Daughters - another Lagoon 42 TPI located in the UK) last weekend...who, of course, informed us he also had a copy of this 'scarce as hen's teeth' document. Isn't it always the way?!

Nick,
Thanks for posting the owners manual! I've had a 1996 Lagoon42 TPI for about 6 years and found lots of great info in the manual. I also noticed in the manual that the water tanks were in the bilge. Mine has them under the bunks in the aft cabins. How is yours set up? If in the bilge, are they integral tanks?
thanks,
Doug

Yes, in the 1993, the water tanks are in the bilge and are integral. Under the after bunks is a good bit of storage and then aft is engine access.
