|Built in France in 2006,'Big Kahoona' is an immaculately presented and very well specified Beneteau First 44.7 exclusively For Sale with YOTI.
As a one owner yacht, 'Big Kahoona' is arguably the neatest First 44.7 in Australia and represents a very competitive IRC/ORCi package, whilst still appealing to a buyer looking to cruise comfortably and safely. Her inventory includes a comprehensive wardrobe of composite racing sails and several more durable cruising sails. Most of the racing and cruising instrumentation has been recently upgraded and includes Raymarine autopilot, Raymarine Colour chart plotter and ICOM HF and VHF. In addition to a great sail wardrobe, her standing rigging has been very recently replaced as has most of her running rigging.
This yacht is ready to race now or cruise to her next regatta.
