Description: Beneteau First 435 Exceptional yacht with proven ocean performance
German Frers is a naval architect renowned globally for designing winning racing yachts. Beneteau's First 435 is arguably one of his most beautiful hull designs. Built to cross oceans and win trophies, this powerful, strong and robust yacht is easy to manoeuvre and comfortable to live on at sea.
Spirit was launched in 1986 and has spent the majority of her life in Qld waters. No stranger to Hamilton Island, Spirit collected several trophies over the years and completed the 1988 Sydney to Hobart yacht race. Shortly after, she was sold to long term owners who commissioned her as a sailing school charter yacht.
Her equipment and safety gear exceeds that of many cruising yachts which would make her a very attractive live aboard vessel. Meanwhile, she would also be a great performance yacht for open water cruising and racing for someone with a modest budget but who is looking for a very safe and proven ocean going yacht. She is equipped with a full sail wardrobe and is fiited with a 75hp reconditioned turbo Yanmar engine with capaciy to hold 600litres of water to allow for long distance cruising in three comfortable double cabins with two heads with ample hot water.
Although Spirit has been sailed mostly for recreational purposes in recent years, she would be well suited for coastal and offshore sailing school and/or racing. She currently holds Queensland Certificate of Operations 2C and 2D until 2022. With a sleek exterior and attractive water lines the First 435 achieves the performance of a competition yacht, while offering the necessary qualities of a true offshore cruiser.
Built and admired by those who really love to sail in more extreme conditions, the First 435 is a true offshore sailing yacht with lasting quality and a beauty to gaze upon with her classic lines.
Don't miss the onboard sailing video and interior walk through for this superb all round performance yacht. She's available to view at Cammeray Marina on Sydney's lower nothshore.
