2008 Beneteau First 36.7

Contact Our Cape Yachts Professionals

Scituate, MA



BIG FISH is a clean and well updated cruiser and racer.   Many upgrades to sails and hardware at great expense make this the cruiser / racer to buy.    Recent high tech sail inventory is detailed in the full specs but suffice to say, Big Fish is ready to go racing.   Other recent upgrades include new blocks and rigging, new backstay, new bottom , new 12" Raymarine Axiom Hybrid Touch chartplotter for the nav station and new radar and mount which has not been installed but goes with the boat.    Also, there are new displays at the companionway and AIS 700.  Right down to new cushions in the main salon.  New AGM batteries were installed (2021) and the dodger and canvas are recent and great.      

While very competitive for racing and one design, the owners also used her for performance cruising and are looking to move up in size now.   These owners have taken excellent care of so call today for a chance to view her in person.

Broker comments and Disclaimer

The owner of Big Fish has been very active sailing and racing this First 36.7 and a detailed maintenance log is available from the listing broker.    Suffice to say there is tremendous value in this boat and the owner will save over $100,000 worth of service and upgrades and have a boat that is race and cruise ready.   Sails are stored off the boat but close by and can be inspected.   The seller plans to have the lower rudder bearing replaced this season and will commit to an exterior detailing prior to launching.   The boat is covered now with a canvas winter cover but accessible so call today for an appointment. 

The Company offers the details of this vessel in good faith but cannot guarantee or warrant the accuracy of this information nor warrant the condition of the vessel.
