Beneteau First 47.7 Kali

Beneteau First 47.7 Kali

Kali is a performance/cruiser and has all the assets for sailing fast but still being livable with comfort. Beneteau has built two versions of the First 47.7 – and Kali is a mix. Kali has the standard keel to go into normal marinas but she has the performance rod-rigging with the taller mast for racing.
Also, the winches have been chosen to be the performance Aluminum from Lewmare. She has a great symmetrical spinnaker with a classic carbon spi pole and we are using a 150m2 Spi.

Reviews from clients

Kyriakos Spiliopoulos (2019)

Bene is an excellent skipper. He knows his stuff (obviously) but most important he is always cheerful and calm. His great sailing skills combined with his great communication makes the crew onboard feel calm, safe and confident. Not once during our 18-day trip was there any negative vibes or yells on board – something extremely rare if you consider our poor communication when we are on land, or my experience from shorter offshore or coastal trips and races back home.
He provides proper on board experience helping all sailors develop, each according to his/her abilities and limits.

Ian MacKay (Round Barbados 2020)

In addition to Benedikt’s obvious skill as sailing strategist and his depth of understanding of Kali’s complexity, he took seriously the task of training some of us with less Beneteau experience, motivating us and keeping calm under pressure (so we all did mostly). All characteristics a a great leader!
