BENETEAU FIRST 305

Broker's description:

This Beneteau First 305 makes an excellent starter yacht combining practical accommodation and easy handling, but with the fast sailing performance of a cruiser/racer. She benefits from many equipment upgrades and regular servicing of her systems.

Stepping aboard this Beneteau First 305 from the sugar-scoop transom you enter the cockpit (with custom made cushions) where a good sized bimini and additional zip-on aft cover protect you from the sun, along with the large boom tent. She has a roller furling genoa and a conventional slab reefing main to aid her sporty performance. She has upgraded winches, genoa cars/tracks and the mast/boom and standing rigging have all been replaced. A new engine was also fitted around 2007 and she has been lightly used by her current owner. 

Descending the companionway steps the galley with new cooker is located to port with the chart table and navigation area opposite to starboard. There are settees either side of the saloon table that make good sea-berths whilst underway. There is nice joinery and upholstery throughout the boat setting the pleasing ambience. The forepeak area houses a double sleeping cabin and a larger double cabin is aft to port and accessed behind the galley. The heads/shower compartment is located aft of the chart table and benefits from a complete overhaul of the holding tank system in 2014 and a new toilet in 2016. The engine is professionally maintained and serviced and new batteries were installed in 2014.

This Beneteau First 305 is ready for new owners to get cruising with no additional expense.  She is well equipped with 220v shorepower, battery charger, portable air-con unit, TV/DVD, a chart plotter, new dinghy (2014) etc, and combining this with her previous equipment upgrades and regular servicing and low running costs, she makes an excellent choice for cruising on a budget.
