Currently owned by World’s Aquarium, a 501 C3 non-profit dedicated to sea lion rescue in the Gulf of California, V-Dom is not just a catamaran; it’s a floating sanctuary. Impeccably maintained and sailing in better shape than when acquired just a year ago, V-Dom is ready for new adventures.

The meticulous care and attention to detail make V-Dom not just a catamaran but a reliable and well-equipped partner for your next sailing journey.

V-Dom formerly known as Cava was purchased by it’s original owners, an elderly French couple direct from the Lagoon factory in France in 2012. For the first two years or so of it’s life it sailed some of the intercostal waterways of Europe and the Spanish Mediterranean. In 2014 a professional skipper was hired to help cross the Atlantic with the owners. The vessel then cruised in Caribbean waters up to the east coast of the United States and eventually through the Panama Canal and ended up in La Paz, Baja Sur. In April of 2021 World’s Aquarium purchased her for the purpose of Sea Lion rescue missions in the Gulf of California.

In March of 2021 current owners conducted a survey of V-Dom. Prior to survey V-Dom was taken out of the water and a substantial amount of maintenance was done on the Vessel. All through hulls below the water line were changed except holding tank valves. The bottom units on Sail Drives were serviced and new propellors were installed. The old props are still on the boat as back up. New high quality vinyl bottom paint was applied. The survey revealed a few relatively common issues for a 2012 Lagoon.

  1. Port side sail drive leaked transmission oil because of a failed lib seal. This seal was replaced by an authorized Yanmar dealer in La Paz, MX. Since purchase the starboard side sail drive now has a tiny oil leak. Eventually it will be time change lip seal on starboard side. Normal maintenance for Yanmar sail drives.
  2. Owners went aloft and surveyed the standing rigging. Upon inspection the lower port side shroud showed some chaff. Amazingly enough many Lagoon Cat’s come from the factory improperly rigged. Upon inspection a professional rigger replaced the lower shroud and also changed position of the starboard lowers so the double diamond rig no longer touch themselves.
  3. The Stainless steel steering cables were also upon inspection found to be in need of replacement and were replaced with 1/4 inch galvanized cables.
  4. The Windless has been serviced with new bearings and base plate and the decking platform under windless has been reinforced with and re-fiberglassed.
