Asteria has been maintained to the highest standard without compromise to cost. We recently purchased a new wardrobe of 3DL sails for club racing on the Solent. All canvas items were also replaced as well as a full electrical upgrade.She is a much-loved yacht, we offer her for sale as she is underutilised in her current role and we don't have time to sail her in the UK this winter i.e we have never even used the 3DL sails.
She is an owners boat, never chartered.
We can relocate for her new owner if necessary.
The First 40 is built somewhat conservatively with a solid hull and cored deck and accessible areas on deck covered in "picot" type non-slip surface.
The galley is well thought out, with stainless steel sink facing forward, a good sized icebox/fridge and a two-burner stove with oven/ grill.
The wraparound navigation station is opposite the galley and is the best feature of the
Interior. Includes a chart table and a desk, perfect for a computer, and plenty of room for radios and repeaters. The saloon includes settees port and starboard with storage above.
