Lagoon 450 catamarans - feedback and/or sellers...?

Have been researching catamarans for cruising (1-2 years), then long-distance sailing (e.g. South Pacific), and the Lagoon 450 seems to be a good fit and balance of size, space, features, etc. for what we're looking for. Especially like the fly-bridge option for clear vantage point and comfortable lounging area while under sail. Realize that this means a higher boom, smaller sail area, and higher center of effort in the rig, but am ok with those trade-offs.

Two initial questions that I would like to ask for help on:

1) Any feedback (positive or negative) from fellow sailors who have owned and/or sailed on the Lagoon 450?

2) Any current L450 owners looking to sell their cat in 2020? (prefer 2013 or newer; non-charter; no previous damage; located in Caribbean, Med, or potentially consider South Pacific / SE Asia)

Appreciate the feedback and any pointers to potential boats for sale.

Good day !
I actually own a 450 F 2018 which my wife is totally in love with!

its one of the best cruising cat ever built with 200 gallons of water and 265 gallons of fuel it can go anywhere .
My last sail was from Tortolla to Newport RI in May 2019 for the summer in New-England made the passage in 9 days and 17 hours with over 80 gallons of fuel left it was a really nice passage .
As far as you sport top claim the Flybridge model has the same sail area as the sportop . Yes you guessed it the mast is shorter on the S model. as far as the strain on the taller rig it is really insignificant .
The performance of both cats are extremely close just fyi .
Btw we are selling our 450 as we are moving to a 50 so if interested her name is MerSea and she"s listed on Yworld under 2018 Lagoon 450 F...

btw im french so sorry in advance for my poor diction/english!

Just back from a transatlantic yacht delivery on a Lagoon 450... Great yacht, very spacious and comfortable to live on, sails nicely and has a good helm station with excellent visibility.

Here's the film of our trip:
