Beneteau First 40.7

Description

Dances with Waves is another great example of one of the most popular cruiser/ racer's of all time.

Beneteau First 40.7 is a three cabin, one bathroom with a roomy saloon and dedicated nav station. They are responsive and easy to sail either offshore racing or as the current owners choose to use as casual Sydney twilight-er and weekend cruiser.

Complete with a large inventory of very nice sails which will suit lazy jack bag and furling headsail when in cruise mode. Standing Dyeform replaced by Sydney rigging. Raymarine autopilot and B&G Hydra navigation.

She was originally rigged and fitted out, incl professionally faired rudder and keel by well known yachtsman Neville Whittey, however has never competed in any offshore racing and just lightly used in the harbour by both original and current owners.

She also has some lovely comfortable features incl cockpit cushions, custom boom tent and table, electric anchor windlass with deck wash.

Dances with Waves has always been serviced annually at RSYS.

She is a fantastic boat and would suit short handed sailing and then pack the family up for a week away.
