PRIVATELY OWNED AND NEVER CHARTERED LAGOON 47 EQUIPPED FOR WORLD CRUISING.
4 CABINS VERSION WITH KING SIZE MASTER CABIN AND EXTENDED MASTER HEAD AREA. 3 GUESTS CABINS (1 QUEEN SIZE AND 2 LARGE DOUBLE. BOTH WITH ENSUITES.

'Family Circus' is an extraordinary boat for an extraordinary family. Having been chosen after years of research and inspections of many other boats, she proved herself to not only be the right choice for their 2 years cruise across the Pacific with their 5 children, in fact, she exceeded expectations.

Her owners had many years of sailing under their belts on a wide variety of boats before choosing the Lagoon 470 as the perfect boat for their adventure of a lifetime. They had raced, chartered, and day sailed mono-hulls and catamarans alike. Buying a multi hull for the trip was an easy decision. 'Catamarans provide a lot of living space for their length (indoor and outdoor)' they write. 'They are easy to handle with one or two people on watch, achieve crossings quickly and provide a comfortable, stable platform at anchor. In addition, a catamaran allows us enough space for visitors. Once we had decided that we wanted a catamaran, we made several shopping trips to familiarize ourselves with the various models. During our visits, we evaluated the options that we liked and disliked in catamarans (galley up vs. Down, three heads or four, finish work, sailing area, design, etc. )'.

Why a Lagoon 470? (You can also read the very instructive review from Cruising World http://www. Cruisingworld. Com/sailboats/lagoon-470-better-breed- cat)
Planning long term cruising in the sometimes difficult ocean conditions of the South Pacific, the boat had to be strong and stable enough to remain safe for everyone no matter the conditions.
The Lagoon 470 is a very large boat, with a good turn of speed in spite of her heavy built. True, she is not as fast as lighter hulls, but when the weather turns bad she can take pretty much anything in her stride in a well behaved manner.
Her design, layout and interior finish combined on the Lagoon 470 to fit the owner's expectations: 'We omitted lighter, less sturdy hulls because we were planning open-water travel. We were drawn to the wood finished interiors for their home-like feel. We liked the galley down as it stopped the kitchen chaos taking over living area. We stayed away from flying bridges based on our previous experiences of poor sailing performance due to the higher center of effort caused by raising the boom (not to mention that they isolate the helmsperson from the rest of the crew). We looked at several catamarans with dagger boards but decided that cost in interior space was not worth the minimal gain in pointing ability. We wanted a higher bridge-deck to minimize "slapping". Finally, we determined that dual roller fuller headsails offered a larger range of sailing angles to the wind and wind strength. The Lagoon 470 met all of our criteria. It was the smallest model made at Lagoon's "big boat" CNB base in Bordeaux. Family Circus is hull number 44 of 51 made. At 26,000 lbs, she is not one of Lagoon's light production cats. She is spacious compared to other 47? catamarans we looked at and has a nicely appointed interior with high-quality finishes that offer lots of comfortable living space. With four cabins, three heads, and a galley down layout with full size 12V fridge freezer, her interior space suited our family comfortably. Also, having children on board you are often the boat that the other cruisers migrate to so many times we hosted several families for dinner or playdates on board. This particular Lagoon 470, Family Circus was well-appointed and had had a partial refit by the previous owners in 2011. She will easily do 10 knots under sail and we have seen >12kn sustained. '

'Family Circus' has such extras as a upgraded 13.5KW generator, five air conditioning units, a dive compressor and four tanks, underwater lights for night diving. Comfort upgrades of a large, comfortable helm seat (especially appreciated on long crossings) and stainless steel rails and stairs to make diving easier rounded out the appeal of Family Circus. The owners also added many specifically chosen items, including three more solar panels (five in total), a Silent Wind wind generator together with a smart three-phase charging system between the alternators helps with energy requirements. See "upgrades and refits" for more details.

During their two years on Family Circus, she has met all of the owners expectations and challenges, offering a comfortable, stable and sturdy home. Equally adept at drifting through the reefs of the Tuamotus under gennaker alone, as on a three thousand mile high-speed reefed run from La Cruz, Mexico to the Marquesas Islands, sailing down the west coast from San Francisco to the Santa Cruz islands where they encountered 37 knot winds, 12 foot seas, and one tuna. 'She handled all of our crossings, The Pacific Puddle Jump, Tahiti to Tonga, Tonga to Fiji and then Fiji to New Zealand with a solid, secure and stable feel even through some of the rougher weather conditions. Family Circus handled our ten thousand sea miles well. '

Family Circus has been truly loved and cared for so she is ready and looks forward to many more adventures and sea miles.

Below is an extract from their blog:

'Our sabbatical is drawing to a close, and it is soon time to sell our privately-owned/never chartered 2004 Lagoon 470 catamaran, Family Circus. We are a family of 8 taking 5 of our 6 children on an adventure of a lifetime across the Pacific Ocean. We left in October 2014 from San Francisco and sailed down to Mexico, across the Pacific in 19 1/2 days to the Marquesas Islands, then to the Tuamotus, Society Islands, Tonga, Fiji and are now in New Zealand. We are currently living on the boat and then will make our way up to Vanuatu and New Caledonia for our last bit of Island adventure before unfortunately returning to land life and getting our kids back in school. We have had an amazing life experience for the last two years but now it is time to move on. (You can read about our adventure here) We are posting her for sale now with the goal of finding the right buyer, and the location of delivery to be determined (Australia, NZ, New Caledonia)
You can read about us and how we chose a Lagoon 470 for our adventure here. It is a decision we don't regret. Family Circus met all of our criteria. As well as being spacious compared to other 47' catamarans, she is easily handled by one or two people, and copes with a crowd well (we have 8 of us on board in comfort). In addition, she tackles heavy weather with aplomb. Our time and experiences on Family Circus have been very special. She was part of our dream and can be part of yours too!
She is number 44 of 51 Lagoon 470 hulls made and is the smallest model manufactured at Lagoon's "big boat" CNB yard in Bordeaux. Importantly, the Lagoon 470 is the style before the flybridge Lagoons, and has a sail plan that makes it a great sailing boat. Having three adults and 4 kids on board made it easy to stay on top of routine maintenance as well as installing upgrades. We will be enjoying and taking care of her through July but then we will have to say goodbye to our 9th family member. '

Major upgrades and improvements by system
There have been series of upgrades and improvement made to On Delay (Previous name for Family Circus) since 2011.
1. Her previous owners carried out extensive work in 2011, including new running rigging, new through-hulls, upgraded helm seat, new electronics, new 13.5KW generator, new dive compressor and tanks, new underwater lights, new memory foam mattresses, and more.
2. In 2012, when we took ownership of On Delay, we made a number of additional upgrades including to the charging system, installation of new life raft, new drogue, alarm system, batteries, trampoline and more.
3. In September 2013, we were struck by lightning in the Las Brisas anchorage in Panama City. The enforced stop while we attended to the replacement and upgrade of almost everything on the boat containing electronics also gave us the time to make a number of other repairs and upgrades while we had access to skilled workers. We repaired a leaking hull-deck joint and a number of minor leaks, rebedded all of the windows, refinished both tables with seven coats of two-part polyurethane, had all interior and exterior cushions, curtains, and table-covers replaced. We installed our long awaited new sails... Not to mention that we installed a sophisticated lightning protection system designed by Ewen Thomas Ph. D. Of Marine Lightning Systems.
