Broker's Comments

You don't have to bother to go to a jeweller to purchase silverware with a First 40, just stand on the podium after the Regatta!
This example is in tip top condition and she has been well cared for and lightly used although she did compete in this years Fastnet race. The furniture has always been protected by padded covers. She has a comprehensive sail wardrobe, all in good condition.
The accommodation comprises of 2 stern cabins leading into the saloon. The navigation station is to starboard with the galley opposite. There are 2 settee berths giving ample seating around the cabin table. The heads are to starboard next to a large forward cabin.
She has had 2 fastidious owners who have lovingly cared for her. She has never been chartered. She is an easy yacht to handle and is a delight to sail. She is offered for sale at a price to sell.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
