(All sails have been very lightly used)

Remarks

This yacht is believed to be one of the most highly specified First 50S ever built.

Since being build the search for perfection and performance has continued with the new Full Carbon Hall Rig in 2011. BAM BAM can be purchased with the Carbon Rig as an optional extra.

As the hours of the engine and condition of the sails will reveal she has been lightly used with occasional local racing and some family cruising.  Now realistically priced especially considering her options she is the ultimate cruiser racer. 

Internal volume and cabins are exceptional and not only have a modern feel and finish but the creature comforts for comfortable cruising thanks to the copious refrigeration units and air-conditioning.
