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. The current owner has spent nearly £7000 in the last year on this vessel & is only selling to upgrade to a larger vessel so a part exchange may be considered.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
