Broker's Comments

Initial impression is of a boat which is obviously in good order. This well maintained Beneteau First 285 has the huge advantage of having had money spent on the more expensive items in recent years. Sails (2005/6), engine (2006 - 140hrs) and rigging (2000). Complete with chart plotter, a good sail wardrobe and comprehensive safety equipment, she is ready to sail away. This sought after model represents excellent value for money.
