47 Lagoon built by Jeanneau - Affordable Luxury!
"Sonder" is a very elegant, clean and efficiently outfitted Lagoon 47 that has always been privately owned and never chartered. The current owners purchased her in Florida in 2016 and sailed her to Grenada. In 2012, a substantial refit was completed that included transforming her into a 3 cabin, 2 head (stb head has a walk-in shower) layout. The port forward cabin was converted into a spacious workshop complete with a proper bench and storage.

Sonder left Ft. Lauderdale in January 2017 and went to Boca Raton where we spent 3 months getting to know the boat and getting her ready for our trip
•We sailed from Miami to the Bahamas May 7th 2017. We traveled through the Bahamas, down to Puerto Rico, across to St. Thomas, and down the Caribbean island chain finally arriving to Grenada in July 2017.
•Sonder (formerly Mira and Hakunamatata) was built in France in 1991. She had two US owners, one briefly, the
second for about 13 years. The second owners sailed her extensively in the US and Caribbean. They
crossed the Atlantic and sailed for some years in the Mediterranean, ultimately selling the boat in
Turkey in 2008.
•The Turkish owners sailed her seasonally in Turkish waters from 2008 until the spring of 2011.
•Purchased by the next owners in the Summer of 2011.
2011-2015: Westward progress (slowly) from Turkey to Gibralter and on to the Canary Islands
•2015-2016: Transatlantic crossing (Las Palmas, Canary Islands to Antigua)
•2016: Caribbean from Antigua north to Florida
•lived aboard Mira from April, 2012, until June, 2016, summering mostly at anchor and wintering in
Turkish and Sicilian marinas.
The boat is a classic in terms of performance and gracefulness. It’s a pretty boat that heads up into the wind better than many catamarans in its class.
•The upgraded electrical system performs very well. In summer, thanks to the combination of solar panels and 1000 amp hour battery bank, the boat operates with very little external power. Most appliances, including the washing machine on cold cycle, run off the inverter. (The only appliances we had that required connection to shore power were a vacuum cleaner, an induction hot plate, and,during a very hot, humid summer in marinas in mainland Spain, a portable air conditioner.) In winter, we needed shore power only to operate small space heaters.
•The hard top was designed to carry the solar panels and to provide access to the full length of the access to the cabin roof; (2) the larger shaded area has made the cockpit cooler and more enjoyable; (3) there are ample attachment points for hanging shades for the cockpit. And it doesn’t leak and doesn’t flap in the wind as the old bimini did. A significant improvement.
•The cockpit enclosure has made living aboard in winter very comfortable. Without the enclosure, wet
winter weather stuck with us right up to the door into the salon. With the enclosure, we can stage wet
gear outside the salon, a benefit we anticipated. For our winters in Sicily, with a southern exposure for
the cockpit, the warm dry area inside the enclosure provided us with a solarium and a heat source for
the boat. We were able to heat the salon by blowing warm air from the cockpit into the boat itself, a
benefit we had not expected.
•In summary, the focus of the changes we made was to create a comfortable environment for full-time
cruising for a boat that was already very seaworthy and reliable.
