Broker's Comments

The Beneteau 40.7 was a popular choice in racing fleets and seen competing all over the globe. The boat preformed and rated well under various class racing handicap systems. They also had creature comforts below deck and could be used as fast cruisers as per this example which had just crossed the Atlantic in the ARC Rally December 2023.

In the last few years this example has seen many upgrades and replacements in preparation for the crossing including new sails, watermaker and essential service items.

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