Broker's Comments

This Beneteau First 35 is exceptional, it has been very extensively upgraded and updated in recent years. The current owners are the second owners from new and have owned it since 2003.
Upgrades include a Volvo D1-30 engine that has only completed 325hrs. Good quality North Tri-radial Main and a Hyde Tri-radial Genoa with a foam luff. The upholstery and mattresses were replaced in 2011, new windows were fitted in 2011, eberspacher cabin heating, new water tanks, a purpose made holding tank plus electric heads. The instrumentation is comprehensive and includes two chart plotters & radar.
The list goes on this Beneteau First 35 needs for nothing really; the only thing I would replace is the VHF Radio it could do with a DSC version but that's it!
