Ramillies, is an excellent example of the popular racer-cruiser from the French builder Beneteau and designed by Farr and Associates.
Currently sailing the beautiful waters of Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia, Canada, this Beneteau First 44.7 was built in 2005 and has a extremely comfortable 3 cabin, 2 head layout with all the custom "go-fast" equipment to keep this boat competitive on the race course for years to come. As proof she has just kicked up her heels and won first place in her division in Chester Race Week, Canada's largest keelboat regatta held recently in Nova Scotia.
Owned by an experienced yachting family, who have cared for the boat thoroughly since purchase in 2012, this model features upgraded upholstery as well as a full 2020 UPGRADED electronics package including Garmin GPSMAP 8610, GNX 7 “ display GNX 21 and GMI/GNX wited Sailpack 52.
The cabin layout offers a double berth forward stateroom with an adjoining head with shower just forward. The port and starboard aft cabins offer double berths and share an aft head that is complete with shower as well. She is equipped with the shallow draft keel and upgraded aluminum Sparcraft rig. A Pro-Furl roller furling headstay, Quick Cover removable from the lazy-jacks on the main, Headstay furling cover and Harken 2-speed 53, electric halyard winch and 5 self-tailing winches make this an easy boat to cruise by a couple or the whole family.
For the racer, Ramillies is Ready: adjustable genoa leads, solid boom vang and a aluminum spinnaker pole and a sail inventory that is both extensive and up to date !
Topping this off, the owners have ordered, from North Sails, a NEW Genoa Light/ Medium 3Di RAW 760 12,6000 Dpi to add to an already impressive sail inventory for the coming season.
In the current challenging environment, this vessel can actually be delivered to new owners in the US.
LIGHTING & SOCKETS
The feedback provided by over 550 owners of the First 40.7 has been instrumental for Farr Yacht Design and the Beneteau 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.
