Beneteau First 42
Our boat is a First 42 built by the Beneteau shipyards in 1984. All First 42s have been built with great care right from the design stage and in the yard, and they are still admired and desired for their beauty, for their balance. for the step on the wave, the seaworthiness, for the practicality of the interiors, the luxury of the woods below deck. It is a boat like few others, successful in all aspects of going to sea: fast, robust, balanced, comfortable, elegant, safe.
These are the words that accompanied the presentation of the boat:
"Designed by the Argentine architect German Frers, creator of some of the most beautiful yachts in the world (Bumblebee, Helisara, Flyer), the First 42 is an exceptional boat and possibly one of the gems of French shipbuilding.
Developed by the Two-Ton Cup winner, the First 42 was naturally endowed with the qualities of Gitana VII: power and excellent balance.
On the contrary, it is in the harshest weather conditions that the balance of the boat manifests itself in its spectacularity.
Great attention was paid to detail in the design of the deck: the Beneteau shipyard benefited from the advice of ocean navigator Michael Malinowsky.
All this has been tailor-made to navigate the high seas, in complete safety, in all oceans. "
It is the boat that I have wanted for so many years.
The First 42 is a boat built in a period when it was normal for sailors to have a somewhat Spartan life. Many of today's charter boats are made more for life at anchor than for sailing; not mine. It is therefore necessary to adapt to the berths of the aft cabins which are excellent for a couple who loves each other or for two people who are not bulky. Only one bathroom needs to be shared for the whole crew. The cockpit is more suited to maneuvers than to make the crew dance. The shower is only external, the fridge is small, and there is no space for rigid suitcases or trolleys.
