The 400 S2 is a pleasure to sail in all conditions and has an impressive payload for serious voyaging. The new interior of the S2 makes better use of the space and comes with a choice of four layouts.
If you’re comparing the 40 to the 39, the most obvious external difference is the mast position, which like most modern cats, is at the front of the saloon and supported by the main forward bulkhead. The forward mast position means she has an overlapping genoa which draws her along particularly well in lighter airs. The freeboard is high, which is good news for taller guests in the cabins, the bathrooms and the saloon. Visibility is fantastic from the saloon or cockpit, so you can safely move around on long passages without being “lashed to the helm” which can be so tiring on monohulls.
Nauta Design have been tasked with redesigning the interior of the 400 and the result is the stunning 400 S2. Nauta's brief was to provide a warmer, more homely feel, which has been achieved by the use of more wood and fewer exposed GRP surfaces. The saloon/galley layout make much better use of the available space. The main fuse panel is now behind the galley console, providing space for a chest fridge or freezer without compromising the storage space in the galley area. The dining table now has the provision for seating on three sides. Below, the aft double beds have been widened at the foot, with a step on one side to ease access. In the 3 cabin version you can now choose between a settee or additional storage lockers in the owner’s hull.

A Raynard - Owner of a Lagoon 620
Tulu has been a real pleasure to live and sail aboard. Nearly four years and 16,000 miles on, I'm not sure there is much we would change! Ancasta have always been, before, during and after delivery/commissioning most helpful and attentive. We definitely made the right choice. .... "
