Manufacturer Provided Description Racing aficionados will not be disappointed with Bruce Farr & Associates' First 40.7 hull. It has an efficient layout, ergonomic cockpit, and impressive sail plan. For those who would rather cruise, the optional removable cockpit lockers, easy to handle furling genoa, fully battened mainsail, and moderate draft, all make the First 40.7 an extremely versatile boat. Structurally, only the best possible performance features have been adopted: injected carbon - vinylester rudder blade; composite rudder stock (with self-aligning upper and lower rudder bearings); and glassed inner structure for rigidity, weight saving, and optimal distribution of stresses from the rigging, keel, and helm. The large wheel is leather covered. The helmsman's seat is slatted teak. The genoa has an efficient sheeting angle of 10 degrees and comes equipped with Lewmar racing ball bearing cars (the mainsail car is the same). The sidedecks are wide and almost level with extremely efficient nonskid, handrails are always within arms reach, and the foredeck is completely uncluttered. The nav station has an expansive chart table and plenty of shelves and lockers - fine craftsmanship is evident throughout. The electronics panel is slightly curved for maximum instrument viewing. Behind the curved navigator's seat lies a storage shelf perfect for charts, binoculars, and gear. To port, the L-shaped galley is ideal for cooking whether underway or at an anchorage. Galley equipment includes a stainless steel double sink with pressurized hot and cold water, a large 12V refrigerator, gimbaled stove, and plenty of space for storage. The salon is comfortable and is enhanced by plenty of light and ventilation. The settees invite the entire crew to relax, comfortably seating six around the inlaid table. The curved lockers and shelves behind the settees are not only elegant but thoroughly functional. The head is to starboard and forward of the salon. It is fully lined and fitted with a marine toilet, wash basin with shower unit, a hanging locker, and plenty of room for storage. Perfect for offshore racing or extended voyages, the First 40.7 has three sleeping cabins, all with hanging lockers and plenty of shelves. The forward cabin has a private entrance to the head and is ventilated with a large overhead hatch. The two aft cabins also have plenty of ventilation and large berths that are produced in two parts so that leeboards can be installed. Accommodation
