|Counter Balance' was one of the last of the wonderful Beneteau First 27.7 performance yacht's to be imported into Australia and is certainly one of the best of them.
Her comprehensive inventory includes the fixed keel which has been faired for better performance, the larger 14Hp Yanmar diesel, Assymetric and symmetrical spinnaker poles, 2 blade folding propellor, upgraded winches, low profile continous furler, the Yacht Club Pack including gas stove & oven, Raymarine instrumentation with A65 chart plotter, Ullman carbon sail wardrobe with asymmetrical spinnaker, safety gear, complete 220V circuit with shore power, boat cover, internal carpet, stereo with cockpit speakers and more.
The 27.7 is sporty and fun to sail with the ability to plane in windy conditions yet it has the characteristics of a small yacht rather than a sports boat for peace of mind, stability and comfort. The cockpit is huge for a boat of this size and there is excellent volume below deck with good berths and basic amenities for cruising with family and friends.
'Counter Balance' has always been professionally maintained by a fastidious professional and cared for by her owners providing many great sailing moments for them on Sydney Harbour.
