Addiction and Sapphire
The Beneteau 40.7 is a great sail boat! Very much a cruiser racer it combines superb performance with lots of room both on deck, and ‘down below’, they are an ideal platform for Racing, Race Training and Corporate Entertainment.


With capacity for up to ten clients, plus two professional crew. Inside they have two large double aft cabins, plus a twin cabin forward and two single berths in the saloon. We are fortunate to have two matched ‘First 40.7 Distinctions’ on our fleet.

Hope And Glory

Not strictly part of Activ Power and Sail’s fleet, but very much Kate, Rob and Matt’s pride and joy, so here is some info.
Hope & Glory / UNICEF was built to the IOR rule and sailed all over the world as part of the International 50 foot group. Originally called Blizzard she was designed by Rob Humphreys and built by Green Marine of Carbon and Kevlar Composite. Re-named “City of Neustadt” she completed the Hong Kong Challenge round the world race in 1997 following which she was bought by Rob Gibson and Kate Mellor. Re-christened Hope & Glory she picked up the UNICEF tag in 1998 when she became a “Sports for Unicef Partner” and has served the United Nations Children’s Fund as a floating billboard and fundraiser ever since.
