'Antigua' is a stunning First 45 F5 offshore cruiser-racer, built by world leading boatbuilder Beneteau in France 1991.
A unique and highly sort after design, combining the legendary performance of a Bruce Farr hull-rig with the modern interior stylings of Italian race car designer Sergio Pininfarina.
World's best naval architect meets the team responsible for Ferrari, all backed by Beneteaus 135 years of construction experience.
The admirable sailing and handling characteristics of the F45f5 are well documented. It's highly responsive at the wheel using its sharp bow, waterline length and deep keel to cut through the water. Providing the power is a generous fractional rig that's iconic and integral to the Farr design. It's strong in light air, points well and is an absolute bullet across wind.
Quality of materials and craftsmanship is more than evident below deck. Mahogany and teak feature predominantly in the woodwork and create a warm, luxurious and intimate atmosphere. The layout includes 2 guest cabins, 1 owners cabin, 2 heads, well equipped galley complete with large fridge/freezer set into white marbel benchtop, a spacious saloon area with two curved white leather settees surrounding a gorgeous oval table, well set up nav table, natural lighting and ocean views in every room via the many portholes as well as 6'5 head room throughout vessel.
