General Information
Builder :Beneteau Designer Jean Berret and Philippe Starck The Beneteau First 35s7 is a powerful cruiser/racer that is bold, bright and beautifully styled. The "s" in the 35s7 is in homage to Philippe Starck, who in collaboration with yacht designer Jean Berret put a unique stamp on the interior for the first 80 or so boats before they became the First 35.7.
The interior is light, with honey coloured woodwork. There is a mass of opening port lights in the coach roof, each with an individual blind. The saloon table has removable fiddles which transfer to the outer edges of the table leaves when extended. On deck the lines are led aft under the coach roof to keep the deck free of trip hazards.
All in all she is a cleverly designed boat and a dream to sail either as a crew at club level or with the family whilst on holiday. Several good modifications have taken place during present ownership including new Raymarine electronics, New Harken furling gear and bigger Harken sheet winches.

Owner Comments and Service History
I bought January First at the start of 2011 to sail with my family. She had been cruised extensively in the English Channel and French coast by previous owner. Prior to this owner she lay on the Beaulie River Isle of White. I understand she was originally used as a director of a charter company's private boat. Unfortunately, since buying the boat my children have decided they no longer have any desire to sail with me or even sleep on-board. I have successfully club raced January First racing with my friend in all weathers usually just the two of us. We have won most trophies in the Club and have now twice come second in a local coastal 24 hour race, the last time by less than 17 seconds. January First is a forgiving boat which can be sailed two up with relative ease thanks to the up-rated winches and the now working main-sheet 4:1 travellier system (old was was impossible to adjust underway!). She holds the weather well and takes the sea well giving safe feeling for all the family. 14 - 18 knots of wind speed is her "sweet spot" resulting in 8 knots+ of boat speed. She is a great boat for cruising and getting there quickly whilst still having the on board accommodation for the full family. She is an "s" model rather than a standard First. This means she has the special Phillipe Stark designed interior. Not many of the 35s7's were made and she is quite distinctive both on deck and below. Notable distinguishing features on deck for this model are the oval port lights with integrated and the clear decks. All halyards etc run aft under the deck so no slip or trip hazards when walking around at the mast or boom. One of the main reasons I bought her really, the totally clear decks! She does come with Whitlock wheel steering meaning it is rod underneath NOT wires. Another reason I went for this model. She is easy to helm with great "feel" through the wheel irrespective of the weather. On the 2 occassion's my children did sail her my then 9 year old son could helm with the wheel at 8 knots + in approximately 20 knots wind with no issues or strain at all Unfortunately, due to the family not sailing with me at all now I no longer need the accommodation and she is wasted on me for what I want to do. I had plans to cruise her but cannot due to family time constraints.
