Sporty Cruiser Beneteau First 31.7
For those who believe a feisty racing yacht can't also be a homely family boat, will be pleasantly surprised after sailing the 31-7. If you enjoy fun, fast paced, challenging sailing yet mostly plan trips with friends and family, you will be happy with the 31-7.
Rigging and fittings meet the sporting requirements yet keep the boat easy to handle. Below deck a lot of emphasis was placed on comfort and homely facilities. The 31.7 is built with wild cherry veneers that give the cabin a likeable ambience, you will notice this immediately upon entering the cabin. It is available for trips and family sailing: a cozy salon with reasonable lengthy berths, a large stable wooden table with a bottle compartment, a workable navigation desk, a sufficiently large pantry with swing kettle, grill tube, freezer and storage cupboards, plus a spacious wetroom.
What is also noteworthy to mention and deserving of recognition is the soundproofing of the engine. The sound is so low that the engine sound is hardly audible in the bow when cruising at a steady velocity.
The First 31.7 combines sailing performance, precision, single-handed handling and safety in one.
