Sailplane 1 & 2 are deep keeled, high aspect ratio rigged versions of 2 highly successful Beneteau Firsts 40 and 45 respectively. They are available with experienced race skippers or bareboat in exceptional circumstances.
Both these marques have an extremely good racing history including the France Commodores Cup Team and Sydney Hobart Class Winners . They also have race wins to their name in many inshore and offshore races.
Both boats are equipped with the latest carbon/ Kevlar race sails.
Although the First 40 and 45 are already proven performers, they are easy to sail and safe, stable vessels suitable for corporate teamwork. Normally first40charter.com would provide a suitable skipper and mate depending on the charterers’ experience. Both boats are coded and ready to go for 2015.
