Why charter a First 40
Because she is very easy to handle, forgives helming imperfections and goes really fast! Rating is very good too, so if you are chartering a First 40 you can be sure of a good performance.
We spend a lot of money on getting top performance out of our Skylander, so you can be sure of a clean bottom before each race and a fantastic set of racing sails
Plenty of space
Plenty of space for everyone onboard, 8 comfortable bunks in 3 cabins plus saloon. Charter a First 40 and you have chartered a palace, as far as racing yachts go!
