Beneteau First 31.7  was originally delivered in 2000, when purchased by the current owner in 2015 Snowbound was very lightly used but age related rigging and engine seal service items were due. In current ownership she has been comprehensively maintained and upgraded, predominantly for safe family cruising but to a standard that has allowed entry to a total of 3 JOG and 3 RORC 2-handed offshore races including the 2019 Fastnet.
Freshly anti fouled, fully serviced and ready to go for the 2020 season. 
Owner's comments:
Snowbound has hugely exceeded our expectations and will be greatly missed but is now for sale in anticipation of a further expanding family and hence a lack of time to fully enjoy her in the coming season.
