About this Beneteau FIRST 41S5


From the pen of Design master Jean BERRET and the famous interior designer Philippe STARCK between them created a true master piece of a sailing yacht. 

Little Rebecca has only had two owners who both and looked after her to a high standard with regular updates. 

She benefits from a good electronics package with new digital radar just fitted and all the creature comforts you would see on the younger yacht of this size. 

Beneteau wrote on the model when Launch. Astonishing, innovative, captivating, the First 41 S 5 combines qualities that have never been brought together aboard a sailing boat before. The new master of the cruise race is here.

She is antifouled in Feb 2021 and launched ready for a summer season sailing.

View highly recommended.
