In the last decade the Bruce Farr designed Beneteau First 40s have proved to be phenomenally successful class of cruiser racers.
The First 40 yachts are the leaders in the trend towards crossover yacht designs. They offer a performance racing boat and a family friendly cruiser that covers the distance between ports quickly.
Much consideration has gone into the deck layout, steering, sheeting and crew positions. Making them easy to handle, fast and forgiving for inexperienced sailors. They have a great racing rating too which helps achieve great results on the race course too.
The spacious interior benefits from Italian designers giving an elegant, contemporary and luxurious feel.
