Broker Remarks

This Beneteau First 34.7 is a superb example; she has had significant upgrades and continual maintenance over the last five years.
This Beneteau First 34.7 is set up for coastal, offshore, short-handed and crewed racing; she is also comfortable as a fast cruiser for those enthusiasts looking for a quick passage maker.
If you are searching for a cruiser/racer for this season's regattas, look no further, as this yacht has all the ingredients to fire you straight into championship contention; all that is left is for you to point her in the right direction!!
She has the carbon rig package and benefits from a rig refit with new rod rigging, running rigging associated pins, blocks and has also had the mast and spreaders recently re-lacquered!
Her sail wardrobe is vast, and the condition of the sails are very good, as she has been lightly sailed since the newest sails were purchased.
