S/V Eden is a Pacific based 2016 Lagoon 42 Owners Version  catamaran available for sale by owner in Whangarei, New Zealand.

Price plus Duty/GST if applicable. Currently registered in Germany, VAT paid in EU.

This Lagoon 42 with its 3 cabins and 3 heads is fully equipped for bluewater cruising. Only two owners, never in charter. Eden has many upgrades to suit all requirements for bluewater cruising such as 2x57HP Yanmar motors with low hours, Code Zero & Parasailor, folding props, electric winches, generator, 140l/h Unitam watermaker, Solar bank, Victron inverter, long range water and fuel tanks, 2 fridges & 1 freezer, 3 independently controlled Webasto reverse cycle air conditioning/heating system, 7kg household washing machine and much more.

Eden was fully surveyed in September 2022.

We bought Eden at the end of 2020 in the Caribbean. The previous owner bought the boat from the factory in France and sailed it over the Atlantic. During the 4 years they only sailed about 4 000 miles and only moved up and down the windward islands. The boat was never in charter.

During the first year we owned Eden, we sailed in the Caribbean. We serviced, upgraded and updated major systems such as the watermarker and batteries and added a code zero sail for light wind conditions. Immediately after the purchase, Lagoon replaced the cross-beam, still under warranty. We also upgraded the windlass, bought a new anchor chain and upgraded to a Roccna 33kg anchor which never failed us. 

For comfort we had new seat covers for the cockpit settees and the helm seat made (sunbrella, June 2021). We also added Webasto air-conditioning to the cabins which we only used a few times in marinas. After 12 months we felt the boat to be ready for the Pacific crossing.

The last antifouling (Seajet 33, semi-soft) was done in January 2022 in Panama. During the haul-out we also had the sail drives serviced by a professional. All engine and generator services were done according to the maintenance schedules. Due to our meticulous preparation, we did not experience any technical problems during the 4200 mile passage from Panama to French Polynesia.

We find the L42 owners version to be the ideal boat for a cruising family, coastal sailing or as an investment under charter. There is plenty space for toys and a few kilograms extra weight do not seem to make the boat any slower or sluggish. We came to appreciate the space in the engine bays for services.

In addition to the standard sails, the parasailer and code zero made us enjoy sailing in light winds as we often experienced them in the South Pacific. After all, at least for us it was much nicer to wait for the right weather window and comfortably sail in lighter winds at a decent speed.

The folding props reduce the drag when sailing and in general, we were able to keep up with some larger catamarans during our passages. The L42 is no high-performance cat but with the right trimming of the sails, it will get you anywhere safely, comfortably and at a decent cruising speed. The large diesel tanks theoretically give you a range of 1 300 miles at 5.5 kn (running one engine), enough to make it through windless areas.

Our family adventure comes to an end, and we hope that the next owner will enjoy the boat as much as we did and continue the journey.
