The New Beneteau 40

Here is the inital report from our friends at Annapolis Yacht Sales:

“Handles like a Mercedes Benz and trucks like it’s on rails! The big shoes to fill are of the Beneteau First 40.7, arguably the best production 40 foot racer/cruiser in history, with over 700 built. After an hour and a half of sailing the… New First 40 in 20 knots of wind, easily reaching 10.4 knots downwind, we think the new First 40’s feet are too big for those shoes!” – Garth Hichens
