Broker's Comments

This fine Beneteau first 285 is a very good example of a popular and we'll respected motor sailing yacht capable of long or coastal cruising with ample cockpit space complimented by her spacious interior for a yacht of just under 29ft. built as a six berth she is very well suited as four + 2 children.
She has been well looked after by her present owner and has a fine compliment of electronics onboard she is only on the market as the owner is looking to replace her with a larger vessel.
The Beneteau first 285 is ready to sail away now with a new owner and viewing is highly recommended.
