Broker's Comments

Just occasionally one steps onboard a real gem of yacht and this Beneteau 260 First Spirit is one of them.The current owners bought her five years ago and wants to move up to a larger yacht. The condition of the boat is a credit to not only its present owners but also the previous owner.

It is very easy to move around this yacht thanks to the generous side decks. Below it is light and airy, thanks in part to the light coloured wood and the clever sliding hatch which forms a type of sunroof.
A lovely example for the year, is the best way to describe this tiller helmed lifting keeled Beneteau First. Whether you are day sailing for enjoyment with the family, cruising or would like to prepare the boat for seriously racing, this yacht ticks all those boxes.Fast fun with a substantial list of sails all in good condition. A nice clean example with clean fabric covers below.Her inventory is very impressive, good levels of navigation equipment including a VHF, GPS, Autohelm and lots more.
She has a good sized cockpit, and inside there's plenty of space and the layout is practical and sociable. She really does look ready to sail......
