Broker's Comments

This is a well presented example of the Beneteau First 285. She has been in the same ownership for 10 years and has been religiously maintained and cared for. The design allows for a good turn of speed as well as being a comfortable cruising yacht. All lines lead aft to the cockpit and with a furling headsail and lazy jacks, this yacht can be sailed single or short-handed if needed.
A great yacht for family cruising with accommodation for six and plenty of space in the saloon and cockpit for all the crew.
It would be my pleasure to show you on board this lovely vessel, so call today to make an appointment.

These boat details are subject to contract and are waiting owners confirmation.
