1983 Beneteau First 42

19 October, 2012 by EVAN

About this Sailboat:

There were many racing boats built in the 1980’s, but one “cruiser/racer” stood out – the Beneteau First 42. Under sail in light or heavy air, Euphorie is a true club racer with an abundant sail inventory and all necessary hardware for winning. She is a quality German Frers design with a solid hand-laid fiberglass hull, open deck space and a comfortable cockpit for 8. All lines are run into the cockpit for easy single handling and all winches are self tailing. Her interior has recently been varnished and a new teak & holly sole and new headliner were installed. There are 6 berths sleeping 8 guests or crew with good storage for long distance cruising or racing.

Lovingly cared for by the original owner, Euphorie is race or cruise ready today. Do not hesitate to preview this well equipped world racer before she is scooped up by a racing club. Call Barry at (# removed) for more information.
