First 40 Yacht Charter

About the Beneteau First 40

Berths: 8 (3 cabins)

The new Beneteau First 40 continues the tradition of the First 40.7 and is a thoroughbred amongst racer/cruisers. The interior layout is modern and comfortable and yet the First 40 has had highly impressive racing results, showing a winning combination of style and performance.

With a total sail area of 91m², 136m² spinnakers and a deep race keel giving a draft of 2.45 metres the boat speeds for the First 40 will be impressive and the excitement even greater than that of the well established First 40.7. The deck layout offers a spacious cock pit and plenty of room behind the wheel for easy crew movement during racing and abundant space above and below deck. The First 40 also offers up to 8 berths onboard, with 3 double cabins and two single berths in the main saloon.
