Beneteau First 47.7 - Sportbar - $242,000


First commissioned in Sydney in 2003 by the Australian Beneteau Agent, 'Sports Bar' was one of the last First 47.7's imported into Australia. She now on the market in Sydney and exclusively for sale with YOTI.

As one of the highest specified Beneteau First 47.7's ordered, 'Sports Bar' recently underwent a significant refit in preparation for the 2018 Sydney to Hobart. Ian Short was instructed as the lead sailmaker and designed a new wardrobe of IRC offshore race sails and composite cruising sails. In 2016 she was completely re-rigged by Sydney Rigging Services and a new Volvo 54hp diesel was fitted by Douglas Marine in Pittwater.

She had a new set of B&G H5000 sailing instruments fitted as well as AIS transponder and B&G touchscreen plotter below.
In July 2019 she was wet rubbed, antifouled, polished and had her steering and rudder fully serviced.

As one of the neatest and most complete First 47.7's in Australia, 'Sports Bar' is berthed at the CYCA and absolutely ready for the upcoming season or a successful Hobart campaign.

Please call Tim Vine to discuss this very well presented, fully serviced and potentially regatta wining yacht.
