Yachting Brokers are pleased to offer for sale a Beneteau First 31.1. Designed by Jean-Marie Finot and Pascal Conq of the Finot-Conq Group and in production from 1998 onwards, the Bènèteau First 31.7 continues the series of First yachts evolving from the famous Figaro Solo racing design. As with all the 'First' range, the design is aimed at producing a fast cruiser which can be raced competitively if required, without being exclusively focused on racing. They have fully fitted cruising interiors and are well engineered for strength and usability.

This yacht is for sale with our associate office in France and has been viewed and photographed by Antoine personally. This cooperative agreement provides UK buyers direct access to an English speaking broker so you do not have to worry about language and obtaining documentation in English. Yachting Brokers work to ensure a smooth purchase process and we offer a range of additional services including contact details of overseas surveyors, assistance with transport and help with foreign exchange transfers with Currencies Direct. Purchase paperwork is in dual language and checked to ensure compliance and VAT status (where applicable). We also manage de-registration from the French registry.
Please note that our brokerage boats are based in their home port or marina across the South coast and Northern France so before travelling it is important to have made viewing arrangements with ourselves to avoid disappointment.
