Broker's Comments

This was one of the first Beneteau 505 hulls to be produced and is in much better shape compared to other models of her era that I have been on or sailed. The interior has not weathered except for some minor woodwork damage at the base of the galley units and this is scheduled to be repaired. The bilges and heads are all clean and the owner has just invested in new sails and reconditioned the 85HP perkins diesel.
