Our sailboat

Introducing Music & Lyrics,  a 2005 Lagoon 440 Catamaran with hybrid electric drives. She is our floating home, where we work, and how we travel. We chose the name Music & Lyrics because of our passion for creating music, along with the fact that a catamaran has two hulls that harmoniously scale across the water like musical notes in a symphony.

We are working on a video tour, so do check back if you want to see more!


Lagoon catamarans are designed by French naval architects VPLP (Marc Van PeteghemVincent Lauriot Prevost) and are widely respected for their comfort, stability, and attention to detail. Lagoon is the largest manufacturer of multihull sailboats, and in fact, Lagoon yachts make up the majority of vessels in the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers (ARC).

The 440 Owners Version, which is what we bought, is 44′ length and 25’6″ across the beam. The starboard side hull is the owner’s version which has a desk, couch, extra storage lockers, and separate shower.
