Beneteau First 40.7

“Beam” was commissioned in 2007 and she has been set up as a race boat with all the necessary extras to make her highly competitive for premier events.

However, “Beam” is not just one of the hottest race boats on the South Coast, she is also ideal for effortless cruising.

The sail wardrobe features North race sails: a Light #1, Medium/Heavy #1 and Heavy #3 headsails, new 3DL main and light and medium weight spinnakers. There is also a full set of cruising sails to satisfy all types of sailing.

We can match this boat with many identical sister ships to provide the platform for a competitive event. “Beam” is available for charter for all major racing regattas, corporate days and cruising throughout the season.
