40' Beneteau First 40 (2011) - SUNSAIL 4003 Sold 'AS IS, WHERE IS' BUILDERS COMMENTS: Designed by Bruce Farr, the Beneteau First 40 does an admirable job of blending a truly fast hull with a very stylish interior. The interior has been designed by Nauta Design and is finished in an Alpi blond oak which certainly adds a touch a class and comfort throughout the vessel. The First 40 is built somewhat conservatively with a solid hull and cored deck and accessible areas on deck covered in "picot" type non-slip surface. The galley is immediately to port when you come below. It’s well thought out, with stainless steel sink facing forward, a good sized icebox/fridge and a two-burner stove with oven/ grill. The wraparound navigation station is opposite the galley and is the best feature of the interior. It includes a chart table and a desk, perfect for a computer, and plenty of room for radios and repeaters. The saloon includes settees port and starboard with storage above.  BROKERS COMMENTS: "SUNSAIL 4003" continues the tradition of the First 40.7 and is a thoroughbred amongst racer/cruisers. The interior layout is modern and comfortable and yet the First 40 has had highly impressive racing results, showing a winning combination of style and performance. The Beneteau First 40 is a proven winner already.
Below the forward cabin offers a V-berth, a dressing chair and a small hanging locker. The head is to starboard and is surprisingly spacious.There are two equal double cabins aft and the saloon has one single berth to port and one starboard. A center-line table opens up to allow seating for most of the crew.
The Beneteau First 40 is a performance boat that we can all aspire to, and that’s vital in these difficult times. It is designed for “like” racing, not one-design, and that’s also important today. This boat appeals on many levels to be sure, but what will assure the success of the First 40 is the fact that it lives up to its name.
AVAILABILITY:  1st November 2019 All viewings by prior appointment only please as the boats are operating on charter. Our office hours are Monday - Friday, 09:00 am to 17:30 pm. Viewings by prior appointment only!
