First 40

The Beneateau First 40 is a fantastic performance racing yacht, capable of winning world class events.

Sailplane has the T bulb keel, a 2 spreader carbon rig, the lighter stronger balsa core hull, and a full inventory of Doyle and Banks sails.

On Sailplane winning races has always been very important, so she has been continuously maintained to keep her in peak racing condition, with many deck hardware upgrades to keep her at the front of the fleet.
