About this Beneteau First 44.7

A fantastic, extremely well looked after Beneteau 44.7 which amongst other extras is also fitted with Webasto Heating, a Raymarine Radar, top of the class Gori 3 blade folding propeller, 70m 10mm anchor chain. Anti fouling was done in 2018. Brokering fees are included in the price.

Beneteau, one of the world's biggest boatbuilders, and Farr Yacht Design, one of the world's most successful racing design offices, make a formidable team. The Beneteau First 44.7, is a prime example of what two such powerhouses can produce. Using feedback from owners of the First 40.7 and not bound in any way by the IMS rule, the 44.7 will speak to those who appreciate how well Beneteau can build a boat and Farr can design. Those who have sailed or owned a Beneteau will feel right at home on the First 44.7, as will those who have experience sailing Farr designs. The boat is comfortable to the point of opulence below, and the sailing qualities are exemplary. The 44.7 is, pound-for-pound, more powerful and stiffer than the 40.7 and provides plenty of grunt. Surrounding the cockpit are aluminum Lewmar winches; the latest in lightweight technology. The mainsheet is led, grand-prix style, along the decks and back to the trimmer, whose position is close to both winches and helmsman. The traveler runs across the cockpit immediately forward of the wheel, in as unobtrusive a place as possible, and the sheet lead from the boom is exactly perpendicular to the traveler, something we didn't see on all the boats we sailed.

Any objections about buying a performance sailboat and sacrificing comfort will be laid to rest at first glance. Thanks to the long, low deckhouse, there's headroom aplenty, topping out at an impressive 6'9" in the aft head and 6'8" in the main cabin. Two staterooms sit port and starboard under the cockpit, and immediately forward of the port stateroom is a head, which is across from the L-shaped galley. The nav station is located to port at the center of the boat, across from a C-shaped couch/settee. The nav station couldn't be in a better place for offshore racing; away from wind and water, close to the center of effort, and facing the only direction a nav station should face: forward. There's plenty of room for nav displays and even a storage area with cubbyholes for books, signal flags, and binoculars. The use of light-colored wood throughout makes the interior of the 44.7 seem even larger than it is, and even if the weather is terrible outside, it'll be no hardship to spend time down below. The majority of the keelbolts and the lowest part of the bilge are directly underneath a settee bench that faces the large dinette table and sits on centerline. Keelbolt and bilge inspections are easily done by lifting the lever-action seat and moving it to port. All fuel and water tanks are on centerline, and all bulkheads bonded 360 degrees to hull and deck for structural strength. It's easy to tell that the 44.7 was designed with input from owners of previous Beneteaus; access to the engine is among the best we've ever seen. Two gas pistons lift the companionway stairs assembly and reveal an engine with a large shroud covering belts and other moving parts. The water pump faces forward, which allows for the impeller to be changed out without removing the entire unit. Access to all the engine filters is also excellent. The engine is a Yanmar 54hp. Engine noise below is negligible, which means that the off watch will be able to sleep even during battery-charging sessions.

The 44.7's hull is solid fiberglass with a laminated structural hull liner for load bearing and distribution. The deck is fiberglass sandwich with a balsa core and unidirectional weave. The overall quality of the wood and glasswork below is excellent, reflecting the experience of the boatbuilders in Beneteau's assembly plant in France. The ends of all wood floorboards and panels are sealed, which means they won't absorb water or swell.
