Beneteau First 44.7 - Galileo - $196,000

Galileo is a 2006 Beneteau First 44.7 listed exclusively for sale by YOTI.

From her teak decks to her unique Corinthian Blue hull, Galileo oozes style, comfort and the ability to stand out from the crowd all while offering seriously impressive performance. Being a First of this generation she is a sleek and sophisticated racer with all the comforts of a cruiser.

New Dyform rigging was installed in 2016 along with a new racing Furlex furler. The Carbon racing main was also added new in 2017 and her wardrobe by Ian Short is comprehensive.

Galileo currently successfully races out of Pittwater to Cat 2 level, she is serviced regularly and professionally. Instrumentation including autopilot are by Raymarine. Accommodation offers that familiar welcoming quality that we have come to expect from this generation of Firsts. It consists of three big double cabins with the master cabin forward with private ensuite, a second head, big practical 'L' shaped galley, importantly a dedicated Nav station and loads of storage.

Contact Peter Mactier for further details and to arrange inspection on Pittwater.
