Description: Beneteau First 40.7 IRC WINNING YACHT IN EXCELLENT CONDITION!
The Beneteau First 40.7 has an excellent reputation as the ultimate racer/cruiser capable of winning at the highest level without compromising on luxury! Designed by Bruce Farr, it features a sleek hull which is highly competitive on all ratings. This vessel is an excellent example of this. Originally launched under the name 'Fruit Machine', the vessel competed in the 2000 World IRC Championship in Hawaii, and was the winner of Division D. Fully optimised with deep keel and rudder, it has continued in its champion ways under subsequent owners. The vessel has been a prominent member of the Hobart racing scene completing four Launceston to Hobart races, as well as many inshore and twilight races. The vessel is in excellent condition throughout, and ready for its next adventure!
Inside, this vessel features light timber work, giving the saloon an open and airy feel with the quality finish one expects from Beneteau, and all varnish work in excellent condition. The large folding leaf saloon table is perfect for entertaining, with seating for 8 in comfort. The accommodation features three large doubles, each in private cabins, and two singles in the saloon when additional berths are required. The galley is well set up for preparing meals underway, and features a large fridge, 2 burner gas stove with oven, and ample storage space for extended passages.
On deck, the ergonomic cockpit is well laid out to suit both the serious race crew, or to relax in while cruising. This vessel is fitted with a headsail furler which is perfect for cruising or deliveries, and easily by passed when using the racing sails. The sail inventory is extensive with both racing and cruising sails, and all running rigging has been continuously replaced as required. The electronics are also excellent with 3 mast jumbos and 2 cockpit displays.
The vessel is powered by a well maintained and reliable 38HP Volvo, which had a major service at the end of 2019 including refurbishing the heat exchanger, water pump, and replacing hoses. It presents in excellent condition. This provides easy cruising at 6 knots.
With its first class presentation and race winning history, this is a vessel not to be missed. Whether you are after a serious offshore racer, or whether cruising and twilight race's are more your speed, this vessel does it all in style!
