Broker's Comments

A lovely example for the year, is the best way to describe this rare wheel helmed, wing keeled Beneteau First. Whether you are day sailing for enjoyment with the family, cruising or would like to prepare the boat for seriously racing.
The boat is just about to benefit from a pre-season antifoul and topsides valet.
