our beautiful First 405. She is currently set up for daysailing with very simple systems including a composting head
and only two through-hulls for peace of mind and simple maintenance
I have a survey
from just over 3 years ago when we bought the boat
. Comes with main, 120% genoa
and an asymmetrical spinnaker
with a sock. I may also sell the Trinka 10 I use as a tender
which has a sailing rig and good oars.
These boats have an issue with the headliner
foam deteriorating, resulting in sagging headliners. This is particularly an issue in the aft cabin
which doesn't have the attractive wooden battens that keep the liner up in the rest of the boat
. Luckily, the previous owner did the hard work
of removing the headliner
and foam from the aft cabin
Boat has new masthead anchor
light, VHF antenna
, as well as new propane
lines to the galley
. She's ready to go; we sail her every week with my 3 kids
and 2 parents and overnight her fairly regularly as well.
I'm selling because we're looking to downsize - our visions of more extensive cruising have not come to pass & I'm looking for a smaller lighter boat that my young kids
can take a more active role in sailing. I'm particularly interested in fast day sailors and Corsair/Farrier trimarans in the unlikely event that a trade
might make sense.
Attaching some pics to get things started - I will work
on getting more & newer ones soon; the attached are from a few years ago. Give a call or text anytime - happy to discuss.
