We have decided to sell our Beneteau First 235, we will miss it very much, but have decided to buy a larger boat.
It's a lifting keel version, giving the flexibility of good sailing performance, anchoring/ mooring in shallow water, as well as moving from place to place on the twin axle trailer that is included in the sale.
Ready to sail, or when there's little wind a reliable Yamaha 8hp outboard is ready for use. It has been serviced yearly whilst in our ownership. Spares are also included just in case it ever let us down, but it never has.
Although we have used it mainly for cruising, the previous owner did race it, which means it has very good equipment on board, for example upgraded winches and cleats. Nexus NX Sea Data instruments are fitted.
An Asymmetric spinnaker and pole has been installed. A normal spinnaker and pole is also included.
We’ve always used the same main and jib, and the asymmetric spinnaker.
A second, older, genoa and spinnaker is included.
Also included is a racing main sail and genoa, a larger genoa for light winds, plus an excellent bright yellow spinnaker.
A good quality anchor is included, which we have relied on for many nights.
A working sea toilet is fitted.
A working hob and grill is fitted, plus a coolbox. The sink could do with replacing, it works fine but has dis-coloured over the years.
Viewing is near Rochester in Kent.
Delivery may also be possible so feel free to ask if it's an option.
