Description :

The First 40.7 has been one of the most popular production racing yachts, and yet remains a very effective fast cruiser. 

The Beneteau First 40.7 was designed for Beneteau by Bruce Farr, and introduced in 1997/8. Production continued until 2008 with only minor changes such as interior trim and engine model. 

Over 700 of these yachts are afloat, and they have won many major events, including overall winner of the Sydney-Hobart race in both IMS and IRC divisions. Despite this they also make a good and fast cruising yacht.

Abraxas herself has sailed the ARC and been raced by her owner.  She is in excellant condition and recently had her keel re bonded.
