Beneteau First 40.7

Description

Firefly is a very well appointed Beneteau First 40.7. Previously known as Blue Sky she has competed in some offshore races but has been very well set up for comfortable cruising also.


Her current set up is ideal for club twilight racing with the ease of headsail furler, lazy jack mainsail bag.


There has been an enormous amount of money spent on her over the last 3 years to keep her race ready.

New rigging, new sails, new B&G instruments package, new rudder bearings, sea cocks, batteries, battery charger, new sail drive for Volvo engine, new covers.

The list keeps going.

Hull Construction Material:
The hull is single-skinned laminated GRP. A structural inner moulding formed with unidirectional fabric is bonded and laminated to the hull. Its structural role is important as it takes and absorbs the stresses at pressure points (chain plate tie rods, keel, rudder etc.) and spreads any loads, guaranteeing reduced strain on the hull.
Deck Construction Material:
The deck is balsa sandwich construction (glass fibre, balsa, polyester resin) for an optimal strength/weight ratio and for good thermal and sound insulation.
