Beneteau First 35

£98,000 inc Vat
Ardrossan, United Kingdom


One of the most competitive Beneteau First 35 built in 2009. Sparkling performance cruising racer from Bruce Farr with the results to match this First 35 have been racking up result around the world in IRC regattas but don't be fooled by the large wheel, open transom and North sails. The First 35 is as able a cruiser as it is a racer. It's simultaneously forgiving and rewarding to sail, the interior is both stylish and functional, and it does what it's designed to do; it's well suited to both cruising and racing.

She has a new Code 2 jib and Main from North Sails which are new used.
