Broker's Comments

This German Freres designed Beneteau First 456 had a taller "in mast furling rig" fitted in 2004 along with new rod rigging which should make her a good performer in the light winds locally.
In November 2011 she had an Epoxy barrier coat, Anti foul, Anodes, Cutlass Bearing and New shaft seal, and has spent the last couple of years on the hardstand.
Great Layout for charter or dive trips with two en suite doubles aft and a large cabin for'd with 4 singles, there is also a pilot berth in the saloon. In the Bow with access from the for'd heads is a large sail locker / store.

Note: The vessel is currently on the hard and the owner wishes to sell "As Is Where Is" as he is unable to return to Langkawi.

These boat details are subject to contract.
