Beneteau First 40

Description

Ultimate cruiser/racer. Loving family boat has just recently competed in the Hamilton island race week with family under PHS and prior to that Arlie Beach race week and Sydney to Noumea race under IRC, collecting a few trophy's on the way.

 

 

Prior to this she was well updated in readiness for some great offshore sailing. Antifouled, polished, rudder removed and bearings inspected, new steering quadrant installed, keel bolts checked and tightened, stanchions reaffixed, rig re tuned by Sydney rigging having only just had the mast out and rigging dye tested.Engine serviced so all components of the boat were to the highest standard required for Cat 1 and the conditions expected.

 

 

Fully optimised including fairing of hull, keel and rudder. Upgraded standard euipment systems for regatta and offshore racing such as jib car adjusters, main traveller system, Homatic electric hydraulic backstay.

 

Custom carbon mast by NZ rigging was installed in 2011 which greatly enhanced her performance. Carbon fixed bow sprit and spinnaker pole.

 

The owners have also optioned Flying Cloud as a comfortable family cruiser with the addition of lazy jack main sail bag, custom bow roller with electric windlass.Battened cockpit sun awning and table.

 

Over the years, Flying Cloud has been successfully, however only lightly raced and meticulously cared for by fastidious owners.
