Lagoon's experience with their 40 MY resulted in somewhat of a commercial flop despite the undeniable qualities of that model. At issue was a powertrain that limited the maximum speed to 11 knots. This PowerCat 38, close in design to the C-37 sailboat, nevertheless has the same specifications or almost the same specifications as the Lagoon: it will likely not exceed 15 knots with its two 90 hp engines. But today's sailors may be ready to buy a PowerCat that favors seakeeping and range - the manufacturer claims 3.7 US gal (14 liters)/hour or 0.25 US gal (0.9 liters)/mile.

Manufacturer: C-Catamarans
Length: 38’3” (11.67 m)

Draft: 22” (0.56 m)
Displacement: 14,300 lbs (6.5 t)
Engines: 2 x 90 hp
Fuel capacity: 2 x 40 US gal (2 x 150 l)
