Once again, the specifications that govern the design and build of the First 47.7 combine Beneteau’s expertise and experience with the talent of Bruce Farr, to make this sailing yacht exceptional. It was a success!
Everything from the counter-moulded structure to the appendages, from the cabinetwork to the deck plan, from the steering system to the sail plan and rig, has been studied closely, with the aim of making the First 47.7 a reference in the world of ocean racing and cruising.
First is the name chosen by French boat builder Beneteau for its range of performance-oriented cruiser/racers. First is also the position occupied at most IMS handicap regattas contested by the First 40.7 model since its release in 1998.
Rare vessel to be for sale in Hawaii. She has raced on East Coast, then cruised the South pacific. Please call us for a showing.
