Beneteau First 40.7 - Biggles - $150,000

Built in France in 2002,'Biggles' is a very well specified Beneteau First 40.7 located in Middle Harbour and now exclusively for sale with YOTI.

Commissioned for a well known Sydney yachtsman, and now with her second owner, the brief for this yacht was fast, safe and easy sailing with comfort front of mind.

Specified with an electric anchor windlass, autopilot and a very cool Casamare teak folding cockpit table, she is a very complete cruiser racer. Her sail wardrobe includes a composite main, J3 and J1 both furlable and an A1 Spinnaker in a sock with snuffer. Her Dyeform rigging was also replaced in 2013.

Lying in Sydney Harbour she is in excellent condition and ready for the upcoming season.

Please contact Ian Greentree for further informing or to organise an inspection.
