Broker's Comments

This is the first Beneteau First 29 I have seen and would buy it if I had the money. The current owner has upgraded her fully over the last 3 years to the point there is not a lot left to do except go sailing. She is very tidy and roomy down below and really well sorted above decks to interest the sailing enthusiast. Her previous owner from 1987 to 2006 had her out the water for 6 months every year and there are full engine service records for the whole period to date. She is described as a confidence inspiring boat with no vices, sails very well down wind and in a good blow very forgiving. This is a boat you must see, call soon not to be disappointed.
