Beneteau First 50 - White Spirit - $355,000

White Spirit, a 2008 Beneteau First 50, is now for sale exclusively with YOTI.

With the First 50 we see designer Philippe Briand stepping away from the traditional 'First' racing design by introducing more of a sports cruiser yacht. Designed to be easy to sail shorthanded, this sleek yacht with stylish interior is easy to sail yet does not compromise on speed or racing performance.

White Spirit is powered by a 75hp Yanmar Diesel engine with 3-blade folding prop on a sail drive and max power bow thruster. Her North sails wardrobe comprises fully battened 3DL main, overlapping genoa controlled by a pair of electric self tailing Harken 60 primary winches, Symmetric and Asymmetric spinnakers with an under deck furling system and retractable bow-roller. She also boasts a dedicated central mainsheet ST H50 electric winch mounted near the helm and a retractable cockpit table to allow for a spacious open cockpit when at sea.

Below decks White Spirit offers contemporary style in a 3-cabin, 2-head layout with an abundance of natural light teamed with a sophisticated light oak veneer finish. The master cabin forward includes an ensuite with separate shower compartment. The galley is equipped with 4-burner gas stove with oven, rectangular stainless steel sink, rubbish compartment, microwave and large front opening 12v fridge and separate drop-in cool box.

White Spirit has a comprehensive list of cruising gear included in her inventory which includes a Generator and full Raymarine instrument package. She is an excellent option if you're looking for a stylish performance yacht for cruising and/or occasional racing for two or more.
