Very clean example of this popular Bruce Farr / Phillipe Starck collaboration. Tall rig/ deep draft makes this a very fast boat.
She has been nicely upgraded with new sailing instruments, running rigging and many other recent upgrades.

The First 42s7, the product of experience gained through the First 46f5 and the First 53f5, is also the result of intense research in terms of quality, performance and comfort. From the structural inner moulding laminated on the hull, to the hull - deck joint, the most important words are strength and reliability. The rigging, in both the standard or IMS racer-cruiser configuration, is discontinuous rod, with swept-back spreaders ensuring a perfect hold on the keel-stepped mast. The uncluttered deck layout has very individual characteristics: the "double-body" of the coachroof enables the shroud chainplates to be brought towards the middle of the boat and thus improves the angle of the genoa and increases her pointing ability upwind. It also allows space for two fixed portholes which provide the salon with additional pleasant natural lighting. And finally, the foredeck space is thus enlarged, which facilitates moving about on deck, whether you're making a sail change or dropping anchor. All lines are led aft to the cockpit to Spinlock stoppers making it easy to hoist the spinnaker. The full-battened mainsail falls between the lazyjacks and the cover is on in an instant. The Dorade vents on the coachroof combine beauty with function: when turned to the "sailing" position, the sheets won't get trapped in the vents. Whatever your preference, two or three cabins, pear or cherry finish, the warmth and efficiency of a Philippe Starck interior awaits: shapes and soft curves, natural lighting, and plenty of ventilation via numerous opening ports and hatches. The navigator, comfortably seated at the nav station, can plot the course on the large chart table, and check all the electronics on board mounted on a removable, hinged panel (exactly like the 16-function electrical panel). The fully-equipped galley comes with stainless steel gimballed stove with oven, large refrigerator, double sinks and plenty of storage space. The First 42s7 combines both science and performance, the enjoyment of life on board and the mastery of technology, giving the greatest possible pleasure for sailing long distance in comfort, and fast.
