This fine Beneteau first 285 is a very good example of a popular and well respected sailing yacht capable of coastal cruising with ample cockpit space, complimented by her spacious interior for a yacht of just under 29ft.

Built as a six berth, she is very well suited as four + 2 children. This fin keel version offers the opportunity to explore those areas which may preclude a fin keel version.

She has been well looked after by her present owner.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.

This Beneteau First 285 has been personally photographed and viewed by Ian Sawkins of Boatshed Scotland. Click here for contact details.
