Beneteau First 42
We are presently considering moving up in size from a late 70s C&C 36 to something in the 42 foot range. We are looking for something similar in character: reasonably fast, deep-keeled (we sail primarily in deep water), a little roomier and maybe slightly stiffer. We have been very happy with the C&C.
There are several Frers designed Beneteau First 42's from the early to mid eighties available in my area. Does anyone have any experience with these boats? Although there seem to be a fair amount of them around, I have not been able to find many reviews, even on Sailnet.
Many thanks in advance.
