Beneteau First 40.7 - Wave Sweeper - $119,000


Wave Sweeper is a 2000 Beneteau First 40.7 that is now listed for sale exclusively with YOTI Queensland. 

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. 

Wave Sweeper has most recently been successfully raced out of Hamilton: Winner - Cruising Yacht Club Hamilton Island - Around Island Race 2017, Winner - Cruising Yacht Club Hamilton Island 2017 / 2018 Season, Winner - Division 2 Cruising - Hamilton island Race Week 2018, Plus winner - Pitt / Coffs Winner Syd / Southport Winner Hamilton Island Race Week. 

She has 1E, 2C, 2D, 4E Commercial Survey and can be brought back up to Cat 2YA. Hold charters or corporate events, or just enjoy her pedigree sail handling whilst racing or cruising. 

Her Volvo D2-40F (658 hrs) was new in 2015 and her Saildrive was only replaced last year. 

Down below, Wave Sweeper 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 6 while racing.
