Beneteau First 40.7 - Firefly - SOLD


Firefly is a significantly updated 2002 Beneteau First 40.7 now exclusively listed for sale with YOTI.

The Beneteau First 40.7 combines a sleek and sophisticated racer with all the comforts of a cruiser. With over 800 built, they are simply the world's most successful 40 footer and able to compromise beautifully.

Firefly has most recently been successfully raced out of Pittwater. Standing rigging was replaced new in December 2015 along with new extras including vang, backstay adjuster, and extended spinnaker pole track. Further recent additions include new racing main (Nov'16), batteries (Dec '15), anchor winch ('16), B&G instrumentation ('16), LED internal and nav lights ('16), new reconditioned sail drive ('16), new rudder bearings ('16), all new sea-cocks ('16) plus much of the running rigging has also been replaced.

Down below, Firefly is finished in the welcoming Pearwood and of course being a 40.7 ticks the boxes of three good size double cabins, a dedicated nav station, very practical L shaped galley and private head and shower. She satisfies the needs for family cruising or sleeping up to eight while racing.
