40' Beneteau 40.7 '00 "Ddraig Mor"

DDRAIG MOR has been meticulously maintained by a knowledgeable sailor. In general, the Beneteau 40.7 is laid out very well for both crewed and short-handed sailing and there is very little on the market in this price range that can offer this kind of performance and precision.

Two cabins aft on either side of the companionway with double berths, hanging lockers and changing seats.

Moving forward to the main salon there is a very functional L-shaped galley to port and a forward-facing nav station to starboard. The salon itself features a large centerline folding dinette table with wine bottle storage and port and starboard settee berths.

Forward of the mast to port is the entrance to the V-berth cabin with hanging locker and changing seat to port and an enclosed head with vanity and shower to starboard. The enclosed head can be accessed from both the stateroom and the salon. All cabins’ and salon’s lighting is LED and there are two courtesy/reading lights at each double berth. Five opening ports, four deck hatches plus the companionway hatch keep the interior well-ventilated and comfortable.
