1985 Beneteau First 29
The Beneteau First 29 is a fast & capable cruiser with great performance and handling, which makes her perfect for anything from cruising to club racing. The spacious and well finished cockpit and cabin again make this boat a great allrounder. With up to six berths (forward & rear cabins and convertible saloon) she really is a spacious and great value boat. Accommodation: The forward cabin has a V berth with an infill cushion to convert to a double berth, with shelving, storage and overhead hatch to deck. The Saloon has a port side L shaped settee and starboard bench settee. These settees can be used as single berths. Central dining table with drop leaves, opening hatch, shelving and storage and under settee storage. Galley to port with fresh water supply, coolbox/refrigerator and a hob/grill/oven with plenty of storage. Forward facing spacious chart table to starboard, aft of this to starboard is the door to heads. In the heads there is a manual toilet connected to a holding tank (in the cockpit locker) & fresh water supply. Behind the Galley to port is the door to the rear berth that is lovely and spacious, this berth is completed with storage, hanging locker, opening portlight to the cockpit and a stern portlight.
This model is powered by a Volvo Penta 18hp diesel engine that has been very well maintained over the years.
This particular boat has been owned for nearly all of its life by the same owners, they have only owned Beneteau’s, and have recently just upgraded to a larger Beneteau sailing boat.
She’s has been kept in great condition, she’s had money spent whenever needed, and the new owners will benefit from the love the current owners have given her over the years.
She’s in our lineup now ready for a viewing, the owners have just cleaned her down and given her a fresh coat of white antifoul.
