Acquired by Volunteer Yachting Ltd in 2014, primarily for the RNVR YC, she is fully MCA coded as a family cruising yacht. For cruising, the jib is roller reefing and the main has lazy jacks; all lines lead aft.

Designed by Farr Design and built in 2008, the First 40.7 is a racer/cruiser sailboat, with a higher emphasis on racing aspects yet substantially equipped for comfortable cruising. The First 40.7 is equipped with a tall fractional rig, high performance keel and upgraded deck hardware. Volunteer (when previously named Below Zero) won the IRC 1B Round the Island in 2011. For racing, there is a large selection of sails.
