The Beneteau First 41 S5 is a very popular European racer cruiser featuring dramatic styling and outstanding performance. Only a handful of these French built boats were imported to North America.  The Berret/Starck designed 41s5 was designed to be a great club racer cruiser with a lot of style. The clean exterior lines and performance rig give you a boat that sails and handles extremely well. The interior design is extremely well laid out for a couple with guests. The dark Mahogany bulkheads and floor are well defined by the bright interior cushions and excellent light from the many windows. If you are looking for a well-equipped modern cruiser - racer that performs this is a must see.
