Few performance yachts can achieve this delicate combination that brings a winning yacht together with a comfortable ride when off the course. It is this “best of both worlds” that makes the Beneteau First yachts so incredibly popular. Together with the genius of Farr Yacht Design, and valuable input from sailors, we believe the sleek and elegant First 44.7 is everything they dreamed it would be. It offers exceptional versatility, outstanding value, performance, and Beneteau beauty. This boat is an extremely comfortable cruising boat with amenities like a Mastervolt 3500 Whisper generator, and two Cruiseaire reverse cycle air conditioning units.

While the First 44.7 looks and performs beautifully on the racecourse, below decks it shines far above others in its class. You’ll feel confident entertaining friends in the spacious salon and comfy cabins. The exquisite Beneteau joinery, a worldwide hallmark, is evident in a new pear-toned finish. Fixed hull ports, opening ports, and deck hatches supply plenty of natural light and ventilation. In the elegant salon, you’ll find an innovative, adjustable, curved settee adjacent to the dinette which can remarkably move out of your way. The commodious and private owner’s cabin, with its separate head and shower, is enough to make the most discerning skipper feel right at home. The First 44.7. A dream inspired by current Beneteau owners. A reality for future Beneteau owners.
