'Nellie' is a stand out vessel with new bimini, dodger & main sail cover, and North Sails! All her standing and running rigging has been upgraded over the past four seasons -as well as new Sunbrella settees and berth cushions below deck! 

Designed by German Frers, the Beneteau First 42 is a proven performer:  

She has a comfortable cockpit, L-shaped galley, full navigation station, ample storage, and plenty of space for onboard entertainment. 


 Nellie's beige hull and deck shine in any mooring field with her red contrasting boot stripe. She's outfitted with double lifelines and stainless steel pulpit, push-pit and transom mounted swim ladder. 

Nellie boasts tons of space and a brand new red bimini and main & dodger cover!

Down her companionway steps, Nellie opens up to a spacious and comfortable layout:

Moving forward is her L-shaped galley with two large ice boxes, stainless steel sink with mixing tap, pressure fresh water system, Eno 3 burner propane stove with oven and abundance of storage. 

To starboard is a full navigation station and aft of that is her second/ day head outfitted with NEW composting toilet! 

Her salon is massive: including a centerline table with U-shaped settee to port and straight settee to starboard. Above each settee there's an additional sea berth, affording comfortable sleeping accommodations. This competitive racing machine can comfortably sleep up to 8!  Nellie's interior was redone in 2018 with Sunbrella cushions throughout. Overhead hatches and many operating ports achieve excellent ventilation throughout the yacht.
