Beneteau First 40

Farr Yacht Design have managed to improve upon the performance of the highly successful Beneteau 40.7, whilst also upgrading the interior to create a stylish, comfortable and highly competitive racer-cruiser, the Beneteau First 40.

The First 40 accelerates quickly, tacks nimbly, and is responsive to fine-tuning in all sea-states and the enormous helm is perfectly balanced.  

Since launch in 2010, the First 40 has already won the Rolex Sydney-Hobart, the French Spi-Ouest Regatta and Cowes Week and are frequently found jostling for the top spots in the RORC offshore race series.

Sailing Logic are delighted to offer individual places on board our First 40s Athur Logic and Lancelot II for most of our racing events, including the Spring Series, Cowes Week, Fastnet Campaign and the ARC Transatlantic race plus various deliveries and milebuilders.

She is also available for private race charter, either skippered or bareboat for races in the UK or Caribbean. In conjunction with our sister company Britannia Corporate Events, a growing fleet of First 40s are available to charter for corporate regattas and teambuilding days.
