The Beneteau First 31.7 is one of the most popular cruiser/racers ever built. With a vibrant one-design fleet she provides close and competitive racing in many locations throughout the UK and Europe. She is also an excellent cruising boat - easily sailed short handed. This boat is very well equipped with a good inventory. She is ready to sail immediately and has benefitted from regular upgrades. A must view - great value. New standing rigging in 2019.
