Bruce Farr, perhaps the most prominent designer of racing yachts in the world today, has designed the most recent additions to the First line. Prior to lofting the 42s7, Beneteau commissioned him to design a number of larger boats, including the 50. Phillippe Starck, a designer of boat interiors, joined the team to style the accommodations. The First 42s7 follows the Beneteau tradition of sexy, Euro-styled boats, though it does not have the wraparound windshields found on some models, nor does it have a completely plumb bow. Rather, the boat has a soft, rounded profile, especially in the stern, where the transom is almost oval shaped. The deck is uncluttered, benefiting from a fiberglass halyard cover, a section of fiberglass under which are led to the cockpit all lines except jib and spinnaker sheets. The cabintop has an exceptionally low profile, especially for a boat that has 6' 5" headroom in the saloon. In turn, this means fairly high freeboard. With a light-to-moderate displacement of about 179, there’s not much below the waterline.
The Sparcraft mast is a 7/8 fractional rig with two sets of slightly swept-back spreaders. The mainsail luff measurement of the cruising version is 47.41'; the racing version is 52.49'. Standing rigging is Navtec rod, and shrouds terminate more than 18" inboard of the toerail, which facilitates easy movement along the sidedeck. The backstay has an adjuster. The sail area/displacement ratio ranges from 17.8 to 19.5, depending on whether you have the standard or race rig.
Underwater appendages, however, are not Grand Prix racing shapes, though still slippery. The rudder is a conventional spade design, and the rudderpost is made of composite materials, a boatbuilding trend that saves weight. Three keels are available: a deep fin and two shoal draft versions, one with a bulb and another with winglets.
Two windows are molded into each side of the hull, as are four opening ports. Narrow, vertical windows are molded into the cabin just aft of the shrouds, and four hatches are situated on deck. The overall affect of this arrangement is an interior filled with light, even on cloudy days. Deck/Cockpit Layout
If you don’t like the maintenance of teak, you’ll like the deck plan. The cabintop handrails are stainless steel, which, of course, are less expensive and lighter than teak. The only wood on the deck is a highly varnished teak toerail, and teak inserts in the cockpit seats. An aluminum toerail can be substituted.
The fiberglass halyard cover makes for a cleaner deck and reduces the likelihood of crew tripping over lines.
An anodized aluminum section on the bow doubles as the stem fitting and anchor roller. While this onepiece arrangement must be cost effective, the short roller will not easily accommodate a plow anchor…maybe a lightweight style, but those seldom stow well on rollers. On the First 42s7, odds are the anchor will be stowed below when underway. For regular cruising, you’d want to work out a better arrangement.
The anchor locker has a platform large enough to mount a windlass and stow a decent chain and rope rode. The drum of the ProFurl roller reefer also is below deck level in the anchor compartment, which keeps the bearing race out of the weather and the drum out of the way of the anchor when hauling the latter aboard. We’re glad to see Beneteau using the top notch ProFurl, especially after the headaches a number of owners experienced last year when some Isofurl systems failed and had to be recalled.
Standard running rigging for internal main and genoa halyards is 7/16" rope. Halyards, outhaul,
Cunningham, and lines for the Isomat solid vang are led aft to six Spinlock stoppers mounted on the bridgedeck forward of Lewmar 44 self-tailing winches. The mainsheet and traveler system, which is equipped with Harken blocks and track, is situated forward of the companionway. Though control lines are led to the cockpit, they are so far from the wheel that a single-handed sailor will find this arrangement difficult to manage unless there’s an autopilot. Again, the emphasis is on racing with a crew.
The track for the jib sheets is laid at the inner edge of the toerail, which avoids stubbed toes. Harken track and turning blocks are standard equipment. A block and tackle arrangement that allows changes in sheeting angles while under load, a feature typically found only on racing boats, is a part of the system.
Stanchions are 24", all through bolted and secured with backing plates, and double lifelines.
Aside from its most prominent feature—a 55" destroyer wheel covered with dark leather—the cockpit is an unremarkable area. It is large enough to seat eight people and is contoured for comfort.
Two cavernous lazarettes are situated beneath the stern seat, which spans the width of the boat. Aside from being easily accessible, the covers are large enough for an adult to climb down into the area. On the Owner’s Version, there is a second lazarette to starboard; on the tri-cabin model, however, much of that space is lost .
The stern section also houses a swim platform and freshwater shower that folds down when in use; it is secured by the low-tech arrangement of a line running from the stern through a block on the platform and back to a cam cleat mounted in the lazarette.
A pair of Lewmar #50 selftailing cockpit jib sheet winches will be adequate for flying light air drifters. Two additional winches fly a conventional spinnaker.
The plethora of ports, hatches, and a 5/8" acrylic companionway hatch combine to bring in a lot of light. Combined with the 13' beam and 6' 5" headroom, there is a feeling of spaciousness. Portlights can be covered by pulling out the roll-up shades.
