ONDE AMO – Beneteau First 40.7

A proven racer and comfortable cruiser – now available!

Beneteau’s First 40.7 was introduced in 1997 and has remained a popular and sought-after model. These boats have structural reinforcement with a molded, solid fiberglass grid/liner system which runs nearly bow-to-stern, giving the boat a fast, solid and enjoyable ride in a variety of sea conditions.

Onde Amo (built in 1999) has a beautiful teal hull.  She has been optimized for racing and remains a comfortable cruiser.  Onde Amo is equipped with a significant sail inventory (provided upon request) and features removable cockpit lazarettes to extend seating and storage.  When removed, the cockpit has enhanced maneuverability for racing.

Racers will be pleased to know that Onde Amo is a winner, having several 1st in class wins, as well as 3rd in Class in the 2017 Transpac race, while also competing again in 2019.

She will sail fast and she will sell fast!

Manufacturer Provided Description

Racing aficionados will not be disappointed with Bruce Farr & Associates’ First 40.7 hull. It has an efficient layout, ergonomic cockpit, and impressive sail plan. For those who would rather cruise, the optional removable cockpit lockers, easy to handle furling genoa, fully battened mainsail, and moderate draft, all make the First 40.7 an extremely versatile boat. Structurally, only the best possible performance features have been adopted: injected carbon – vinylester rudder blade; composite rudder stock (with self-aligning upper and lower rudder bearings); and glassed inner structure for rigidity, weight saving, and optimal distribution of stresses from the rigging, keel, and helm. The large wheel is leather covered. The helmsman’s seat is slatted teak. The genoa has an efficient sheeting angle of 10 degrees and comes equipped with Lewmar racing ball bearing cars (the mainsail car is the same). The sidedecks are wide and almost level with extremely efficient nonskid, handrails are always within arms reach, and the foredeck is completely uncluttered. The nav station has an expansive chart table and plenty of shelves and lockers – fine craftsmanship is evident throughout. The electronics panel is slightly curved for maximum instrument viewing. Behind the curved navigator’s seat lies a storage shelf perfect for charts, binoculars, and gear. To port, the L-shaped galley is ideal for cooking whether underway or at an anchorage. Galley equipment includes a stainless steel double sink with pressurized hot and cold water, a large 12V refrigerator, gimbaled stove, and plenty of space for storage. The salon is comfortable and is enhanced by plenty of light and ventilation. The settees invite the entire crew to relax, comfortably seating six around the inlaid table. The curved lockers and shelves behind the settees are not only elegant but thoroughly functional. The head is to starboard and forward of the salon. It is fully lined and fitted with a marine toilet, wash basin with shower unit, a hanging locker, and plenty of room for storage. Perfect for offshore racing or extended voyages, the First 40.7 has three sleeping cabins, all with hanging lockers and plenty of shelves. The forward cabin has a private entrance to the head and is ventilated with a large overhead hatch. The two aft cabins also have plenty of ventilation and large berths that are produced in two parts so that leeboards can be installed.
