First 40

The Beneteau First 40 is a yacht that many would describe as the ultimate racer/cruiser. With its uncluttered deck layout, spacious cockpit and well fitted out interior, the First 40 offers you not just speed but comfort.

The First 40 has proved itself over the years by notching up impressive race results and is a firm favourite for those looking to charter. Great for novice crews, but also a very popular boat with the more experienced teams looking to push for silverware.

Winning races has always been very important, so this yacht has been continuously maintained to keep her in peak racing condition, with many deck hardware upgrades to keep her at the front of the fleet.
