Lagoon 440

Our Sailing Experiences

Lagoon is the largest builder of cruising catamarans in the world, and 440 one of the most popular cruising catamarans and one of the most innovative as well.

This comfortable and fast 44-foot catamaran is one of the best experiences to enjoy a perfect family sailing cruise in the Algarve (Portugal). Every sail-handling line on the 440 leads to the bridge, the skipper can set, trim and douse the sails without leaving the helm (everything trims at the touch of a foot button with electric winches).

Frequently Asked Questions

Bring casual and comfortable clothing, suitable for nautical activities. We recommend you to bring a windbraker.

We recommend the use of white flat sole shoes, with slip-resistant properties (saiing shoes or similar).

Safety is first, please follow the instructions and recommendations of your skipper, especially those relating to safety issues.

This is an activity subject to weather conditions. Trips may be amended due to weather conditions and the decision is solely to the skipper.

The schedules of departures and arrivals, duration and itineraries of the activities are subject to change without prior notice due to security determined by weather conditions, winds, tides and/or any other circumstances beyond the control of our company.

Bookings, made by telephone will be held without a deposit for a maximum of 3 days. Within these 3 days SWC needs to have received a deposit of 25% of the total cost.

The booking will be final as soon as the first payment is received, either by credit card details, by bank transfer, by PayPal or by cash payment at the SWC – office. The deposit is a non-refundable payment.  The balance of the fees needs to be paid 4 weeks before the charter starts.

Cancellation by the client prior to the final balance being due will result in not refunding the deposit. Cancellations by the client within 4 weeks before the date of the charter mean that the client is liable to pay the outstanding balance. It is therefore strongly recommended that you take out travel insurance. If possible SWC will try to transfer the reservation to an acceptable alternative date.

If cancellation has to be done by SWC because of circumstances beyond its control, including sickness, accidents, travel delays, weather, strikes, war or civil disturbance, then alternative dates will be offered or a full refund of the charter fees already paid will be made. No payment will be made for incidental costs such as flights etc.

In case the yacht is unable to return to port of any other final destination, on time due to bad weather, engine break down or any other circumstances, clients may elect to stay with the yacht at no extra charge or make their own arrangements to return at their own expense.

A security deposit will be asked (autorization of credit in our ATM machine) on the amount of 1500€, cancelled in the end of the charters in case of no damage on the boat.
Prices include VAT and insurance. In day charters prices include also drinks and fuel.

Great Sailing Experience

A wonderful morning’s sailing with a truly attentive and welcoming crew, a very clean yacht with refreshments provided our party consisted of teens to grandparents who all didn’t want the morning to end. This experience gave a true taste of what sailing up the coast of Lagos
