Brokers Comments

The most successful 40 footer of its time, this best-seller is as much at home racing at high-level as she is out on a family cruise.

'Beam' is a one owner boat and she has been dry sailed from new. Lightly used by her owners as well so as you might expect her condition is very good. Well presented for sale both inside and out, the boat is an excellent example of the First 40.7.

With a good level of equipment a good selection of sails, all supplied by North, this is a good opportunity to acquire what is still a very popular cruiser/racer. Stored ashore, viewing is possible 7 days a week and is recommended.Offers are invited on the asking price.
