Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
This 1984 Beneteau First 29 with a fin keel has a practical and sea kindly design that will feel safe in heavy seas. A well equipped example of the First 29, she has been well maintained and is in good condition for her age. The internal headlinings are just being repaired and the hull is due to be polished and antifouled for the start of the season (February 2015) The First 29 is a fast and comfortable family cruiser with a large cockpit. Viewing highly recommended.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
