Beneteau First 42s7 - Back Friday - $158,000

Beneteau First 42s7 "Back Friday", launched in 2000 is now exclusively listed for sale with YOTI. 

In Back Friday we find a capable, proven, quick and well cared for cruising yacht. Her current owners have cruised the East Coast over the past three years and as a result the boat has been sensibly and significantly maintained and features real cruising additions that simply work. 

Back Friday is the two cabin version offering a large owner's cabin forward with private head and shower plus a very generous guest cabin to port and second head and shower with holding tank. This layout allows for a seriously practical sea kindly galley with separate fridge and freezer and also allows for a massive storage cockpit locker. 

Most Raymarine instrumentation was replaced new in 2017 at a cost or over $13,000. Standing rigging was replaced new in 2015. The Bimini dodger and infill were replaced just last year in 2017 and also include cockpit side clears and shade covers. Freshly anitfouled November 2018.

Back Friday boasts a very handy shoal draft keel measuring a respectable 1.75 m so allows for both good performance and easy access into many more of our stunning cruising grounds such as Moreton Bay and the Great Sandy Straights. Apart from the cruising sail kit of battened main, 120% furling genoa, storm jib & asymmetrical with sock, there is also a suite of 6 racing sails and the original delivery main & genoa.
