Broker's Comments

The well known and respected mark of Beneteau requires no intro from me. The First 345 is a favourite of many cruiser/racers, many much prefering this model to her younger siblings. She is a 1985 boat and as you may expect she does show her age in some places, the woodwork below would benefit from a touch up and some of the original transfers on the hull and coach roof could be replaced.She has got up to date sails and a good engine and adequate instrumentation. She offers fast sailing and good accomodation at a good price. Well worth a look. These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
