Our Yachts

 

Our Beneteau First 40.7 is the perfect multi-use sailing yacht that is both fast and comfortable. All the best features of the ideal cruiser racer can be found on the 40.7. Her hull and powerful fractional rig with no runners and an adjustable backstay produce a fast and stable ride. The mast is keel stepped for added security. She is a great platform with a spacious cockpit but with a blistering turn of speed.  Down below she has 3 double cabins and should you bring a cat there will be enough room to swing it.  As a cruising boat her speed opens up more options for destinations, jump aboard and Ireland is entirely feasible before the pubs shut. As a racer the 40.7 has a favourable IRC rating and many wins to her credit, whether it be round the cans or the Fastnet.
40.7 layout
The layout of the 40.7 gives two double berths aft, two main cabin (settee) berths and one double berth forward. If you are joining as a single you may request single occupancy cabin for which there will be a supplement, alternatively you may request a main cabin berth (it does mean you’re last to bed though!)

2016 – For 2016 we’ve been giving ‘North Star’ a little TLC, we’re still chasing round a few of the dinks and chips in the gel coat that inevitably happen to a school boat and she’s got new saloon cushions that give her a much more stylish and warm feel.  There’s a whole lot of other work going on in the background too, all the usual stuff, gas certification, ensuring all the safety gear is up to date…. boring but massively important.  Suffice to say we look forward to welcoming our first guests on board and all subsequent ones in the coming season, can’t wait!

2017 – We continue to upgrade North Star, she now sports a new instrumentation suite from B&G (generally recognised as the finest sailing systems).

Through our close associates at Snowdonia Yacht Charter (http://www.snowdoniayachtcharters.co.uk/) we also have access to the rather delightful ‘Sunshine’ a Hanse 345
