Broker's Comments

This Beneteau First 305 comes very well equipped, with an amazing suite of sails which have been added to in recent years including lazy jacks.

She has benefitted from a lot of TLC, including the overhaul of the electronics, new toilet and Eberspaecher heater 2017.

A good all rounder, ideal for cruising and racing with plenty of accommodation and a lot of space for this size.
