The 40.7 has proven to be one of the most popular 40' models produced by Beneteau and the fleet continues to see large turnouts at many events.
This yacht is offered at an extremely attractive price as she needs new floorboards (or complete refurbishment) and the woodwork needs attention.
We have enjoyed our ownership of this Beneteau First 40.7 and she has proven to be sturdy and reliable throughout. Selling as we wish to update our fleet.
