Sleek and very racy lines. This boat looks well maintained and has a great cruiser/racer hull shape. The deck is uncluttered and feels safe to move around quickly. The cockpit is a good size, nice and deep. There is a really good sails wardrobe for the active sailor to enjoy.

This Beneteau First 25 has amazing accommodation for a boat of her size. The saloon berth converts to a double, the starboard berth has a trott box allowing for another single. The forward berth is a comfortable double. The heads area spans the beam of the boat, just aft of the forepeak.
The boat smells good and the joinery looks good too. The saloon seating still feels comfortable but would benefit from new upholstery at some point.
Ideal as a club racer or sporty family boat.

Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
This Beneteau First 25 has very lovely lines and is a well seasoned cruiser racer. She has a fantastic sails wardrobe too for the club racing enthusiast.
The accommodation is so well designed and will provide 2 doubles and a single, so a small family or a racing crew will enjoy relaxing at the end of a days sailing. The mast, boom and rigging have been replaced as per the details. She is well equipped with navigational gear. The engine was fully serviced in April 2011. So the only thing I could find fault with was the upholstery. It is faded and a bit threadbare in a few places. Apart from that she is a lovely sailing boat and good value for money.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
