Broker's Comments

Beneteau First 235:
Over 800 of these popular pocket cruiser/ racers were built over a four year span between 1987-1991.
The boat designed by Group Finot in France was so popular the word quickly got out & now has a large ownership presence here in the USA.
Ideal as a small family day sailor or weekend cruiser/racer for a couple the full beam aft berth has plenty of room to stretch out. The well appointed cabin with small galley & sink to port opens up to a full beam main cabin with a nav station table to starboard; a retractable salon table can be lowered to make an additional sleeping berth in the main cabin. Out on deck the position & location of the the deck hardware & deck organizers for running rigging are lead aft to the large self baling cockpit.
This First 235 comes with a 2016 Tohatsu 3.5 hp 4 stroke high output engine on a retractable motor mount on the transom with less than 10 hrs on the motor. These boat details are subject to contract.
