No expense has been spared on maintaining and servicing this 2000 Beneteau First 40.7 which is being offered with an impressive inventory. A really good example of these Farr designed performance cruiser / racers with proven racing record (twice national class champion) which, after 13 years under the current ownership, is now being used as a fast family cruiser. Topsides sprayed with Flag Blue Awlgrip (2011) and hull coppercoated (2013). Full upgraded racing sail wardrobe and additional equipment including carbon spinnaker pole and cradle can be purchased by separate negotiation - details available on request.
