Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
A good example of the very popular Beneteau First 285, She is a well respected cruiser racer capable of long passages as well as coast hopping. She has an ample cockpit with a very spacious interior for a boat less than 29ft. Optimistically styled as a 6 berth she is more suited to four plus 2 children. Owned by the current owner since 2001 who is giving up sailing.
Viewing recommended!
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
