Beneteau First 31.7

< Back to search


This great condition 2005  example of the ever popular Beneteau First 31.7 is now available.

Additional Description

The hull is single-skinned laminated GRP. A structural inner moulding with uni-directional fabric is bonded and laminated to the hull. Its structural role is important as it takes and absorbs the stresses at pressure points (chain plate tie rods, keel, rudder etc.) and spreads any loads, guaranteeing reduced strain on the hull. The surface to the inner hull makes cleaning easier and provides a better finish. The hull gel coat is Platinum grey.

Additional Description

The deck is balsa sandwich construction (glass fibre, balsa, polyester resin) for an optimal strength/weight ratio and for good thermal and sound insulation. A roughened non-slip surface increases safety over all deck surfaces. An inner deck moulding is sealed to the deck to round off the finish. The deck is reinforced under deck fittings (winches, tracks, U-bolts, cleats). - HULL/DECK JOINT - The hull/deck joint is secured by an unvarnished teak toerail, bonded and screwed. This assembly technique ensures water-tightness of the hull/deck joint and provides safety during movement on deck. - BATHING PLATFORM AND TRANSOM - Bathing platform with stainless steel folding ladder. 220V shore supply socket.
