There are racer-cruisers, cruiser-racers, bluewater boats, performance bluewater boats and a host of other labels for yachts that fall somewhere between pure racing machine and cruising slug.
Unlike most of these boats, however, the Beneteau First 47.7 is what you make it. Check off some of the extra's on the brochure of Riptide, and you have a world cruiser and a family weekender combined.
Beneteau startled the racing world with a pair of optimized entries in the Kenwood Cup, and these so-called "beach balls" (nicknamed for their rounded lines) showed their heels to some of the world's best. This 47.7 Riptide is a sweet water owners version. In good condition and awaiting your visit in Amsterdam. Combine this inspection with a wonderful weekend in Amsterdam and your introduction in your yachting life as the new owner of Riptide is a great success.
