The feedback provided by over 550 owners of the First 40.7 has been instrumental for Farr Yacht Design and the Bénéteau Design Team to create the NEW Beneteau First 44.7. The First 40.7, designed by the same team, is a world best seller with a record of race titles, including an IMS World Championship. Her success is not due to race results alone. The 40.7 offers rare versatility, outstanding value, and consistently high resale value as will the NEW Beneteau First 44.7. This yacht is in excellent shape and is ready to cruise, live the dream and sail the islands on this fast,safe comfortable yacht.
