Boarding the Tobago is via the familiar "sugar scoop" transom steps on each hull. They are a tad steeper than the Lagoon 37, but very workable. The cockpit is decently sized with wrap around seating and is covered by a fabric bimini. The helm is on the right side with a raised seat. Visibility at the helm is a bit restricted due to the bimini height (or lack thereof). Access to the foredeck is excellent with wide walkways. The anchor locker is divided into two spaces with a fair amount of storage for other items. The boat does lack a separate dedicated propane locker (and shut off solenoid).
In the back of the port hull is the primary head. It lacks a separate shower, but is a decent size for an integrated shower head. Behind the head is the engine room which contains the battery banks, a good amount of storage, and of course the engines with decent room to work.
This boat was the two head version, so the starboard hull was very similar except the double berth runs along the hull and sits down in the hull so the bed dimension 4' 6" at the larger end and tapers slightly down to 4' at the narrower end and the optional single berth sits forward of that. The head and engine room are the mirror image except there are no batteries in that engine room. In the 3 stateroom version, the head is replaced with a berth that sits over the engine.
So, we've now seen both the Lagoon 37 and the Tobago 35. And...we're torn. Both boats are nice and have good aspects and bad ones. In general a 35 foot boat should be cheaper to maintain than the 37 (bottom paint, dock fees, etc.). The Lagoon staterooms are a bit larger with more hanging space. The Tobago is supposed to be a better performing boat than the Lagoon, especially in lighter air. The galley space in the Lagoon is better with a built in freezer. The Tobago is a newer boat and more expensive (my broker has proven that the asking price of the Tobago's currently on the market are all well above the comps). The list goes on.
What to do...what to do...
(1) Being a pilot and understanding the plight of the professional airline pilot, I really don't like to brag about cheap fares. I'd much prefer a capable captain that knows what to do when things go wrong. Of course these days does the money go to the pilot or the company. Fortunately Southwest does pay it's pilots better than average so I guess I can live with that.
