Owner's Comments of the Beneteau First 40.7

With my growing family it increasingly gets more difficult to justify owning our lovely yacht. I have constantly kept her in the best condition mechanically and updated all her systems regularly throughout our ownership.
The sails, although in some cases quite old, are all in above average condition for their age.

Brokers comments
I see a lot of First 40.7's, many ex charter and very tired, but EuphoriX presents extremely well and looks well cared for and loved as you would expect from a privately owned yacht.

Beneteau First 40.7 For Sale is lying in Hamble, UK. At 11.96 metres (approx. 39.24 feet) this Beneteau is a bargain at £49,950.
