Beneteau 40.7 fast, comfortable, practical

The Beneteau First 40.7 is a highly regarded, Bruce Farr-designed cruiser/racer sailing yacht, great for racing and comfortable for fast cruising. 

If you love sailing, you will love these beautifully balanced yachts. 

The layout of the 40.7 is very practical, with two double rear cabins, a forward cabin, a comfortable saloon, and an enclosed toilet and shower unit. 

The yacht sleeps six in comfort or eight using the saloon bunks.
