Beneteau First 345 with 3 cabin layout. This First 345 has an enclosed head, L shaped galley, full chart-table and sleeps 8 adults. It has been designed for both cruising and racing with a powerful hull and rig. The First 345 was a groundbreaking design when Beneteau released this model and it still holds it's own performance wise in the cruiser/racer market.
This yacht is well equipped for racing with Ian Short laminate race sails, spinnaker pole, Raymarine instruments and tiller steering for precise steering. The inventory includes Ian Short laminate race main sail, Ian Short laminate #1,#2 headsails and a dacron #3 headsail and MPS spinnaker. Cat. 4 safety equipment is on board.
The cockpit is deep and long giving plenty of comfort for crew and guests, cockpit seat cushions and a large cockpit table make dining on anchor very comfortable. The overall condition is very good, being well cared and maintained by it's owners since 1986. This is an excellent opportunity to buy a well built production yacht that is very suitable for club racing or family cruising.
