This Beneteau First 31.7 has been meticulously maintained with no expense spared, 'Raconteur' has been raced competitively under current ownership as well as some local cruising. A great yacht with a with a large following, this very popular yacht is ideal for both comfortable cruising or short handed club competition racing.
We have owned 'Raconteur' since 2015 and have loved every minute. We have sailed her at leisure and raced her competitively under IRC 0.939 with a crew or short handed.
We have sailed in all manner of sea states and can honestly say she is a good seaworthy boat.
