2008 BENETEAU FIRST 36.7
Hull # 247
“Weather Edge III”

Broker’s Notes: "Weather Edge III" (name reserved) has been optimized for One Design competition. All upgrades and changes meet current 36.7 Class rules. The new steering pedestal and upgraded wheel is the main change from earlier 36.7s. This configuration is a significant improvement in steering comfort and the ability to sit and see forward properly upwind. The new double-spoke wheel is stiffer, and the larger rim is more secure to grip.

"Weather Edge III" is a hard to find newer version and is race ready for the next owner to bring home the silver! Always fresh water use and professional care!
