Beneteau First 40

Description

Beneteau First 40 for sale.

A highly performed, carefully maintained example of this very respected cruiser-racer class, shown above in the Derwent estuary completing a Sydney-Hobart campaign.


Accommodation: For cruising, 3 cabins, 1 head layout finished in light oak. The saloon has two settees with folding table, L-shaped galley and chart-table. This layout sleeps 8 adults. For racing, 2 pipe cots are included, for added berths.


Recent racing: The boat completed 4 Sydney-Hobarts in 2012-2016 (out of 4 starts), reaching 12th overall (IRC) and 7th in class. Her racing wardrobe is correspondingly extensive, including 3 spinnakers (2 masthead, 1 hounds), light and heavy Code 0s on furlers, four jibs, and a little-raced, powerful UK-Halsey main. Also include are accessories (liferaft, storm sails, charts, HF radio, EPIRB, Ray-Marine electronics, race-dedicated sheets and halyards, a racing cover for the cockpit entry, backstay HF antenna, prod to rig the Code 0s) for Category 1 racing.


Cruising: When not racing, the boat has been managed in charter by EastSail, primarily for corporate events and the sailing school. For charter and cruising, her wardrobe comprises a recently renewed dacron mainsail, and #1 and #4 headsails on roller furlers.


Maintenance: Breakthrough's maintenance has been careful and detailed, reflecting her owners' commitment to boat safety and presentation, and the exacting standards required for her still-current commercial survey (up to 18 persons).


The Beneteau First 40 is a performance cruiser designed by Farr Yacht Design. It is a true all-rounder, making it a popular choice of yacht for cruising, club racing and serious offshore racing. This is an excellent opportunity to buy a well-priced, well-equipped, carefully maintained and strongly competitive.
