42' Beneteau First 42
The challenge today is to find a 40 something good value sailboat that doesn't have a whole slew of inherent construction issues and is not priced out of orbit. Enter "Xanthippe" and the Beneteau First 42. The hull is hand laid up solid fiberglass (no hull core), excellent design by German Frers, has an interior that can actually sleep 5 crew in an offshore delivery and 8 or 9 while cruising. There are yachts at boatshows today in the same size range you would be very challenged to find the same offshore interior capabilities. With large water and fuel capacities, storage in several lockers including the cockpit, "Xanthippe" has some serious cruising potential. Add in factory options such as the lead keel, the keel stepped Isomat spar, and the teak ceilings you have nice items not found on others. "Xanthippe" does not have the teak deck option which was found later to be a large maintenance issue.
"Xanthippe" is one of the more popular Beneteau models ever built. She is fast and stable. Its comfortable when the wind pipes up and is light and airy down below. The Yanmar engine weighs less than the original option and is more powerful at a lower RPM.
