Specification P/X My Boat Enquire

A collaboration between Bruce Farr and Beneteau to produce a fast and balanced Cruiser Racer was never likely to be anything but a success!  The 47.7 has proven many times over to be equally at home competing offshore as it is more comfortable family sailing.

"Eolia" is specified with the more cruise orientated set-up, offering the slightly shorter mast and 2.3m keel. Never raced, the yacht has been continually updated and benefits from new standing rigging in 2015, new seacocks in 2016 and sails in 2018.

Ready for immediate viewing and purchase, this superb hull must be considered by any discerning buyer who demands fast and stable sailing.
