Broker's Comments

The Beneteau First 285 is said to have great sailing characteristics. she is at home on the club racing circuit and would also be a spritely family cruiser.

They have a reputation by being an all-around great sailboat – slick, even in light winds easy to work, forgiving to handle; comfortable, with an accommodating cockpit and spacious below for her size.

Worth a viewing.
