Words by Mike Pain, written by Marnie Ebeling

Why Lagoon?

  • Reputation
  • Competitive price
  • New model
  • Liked the layout
  • The sailing rig is at the performance end
  • Dealing with TMG was good
  • Advised from the charter company
  • Always meant for charter so it was a business decision

Dealing with TMG

“The entire TMG team were really good. In the initial stages, John gave great advice and helped spec the boat, looking back it was all very valuable,”  Mike Pain.

  • Good experience in general
  • TMG help set up charter
  • Delivery and handover with Rowan was excellent
  • The boat was in great condition on delivery
  • Really good after sales support
“From our first enquiry, through specification, order, to delivery and after-sales, TMG have been terrific to deal with. Ordering our Lagoon 40 was no small decision and a perfect delivery reassured us from the start,” Mike Pain.

Delivery

On delivery of Ticketyboo to the Whitsundays, the Pain’s were able to do an initial shakedown and got to know the boat a bit…

Sailing through some really challenging conditions the boat performed incredibly well.

Through 3 metre swells and 35kts of wind, Ticketyboo handled herself and the crew didn’t feel at all unsafe.

Charter
