The Beneteau First 235 was in many ways ahead of its time. The plumb bow and wide beam carried well aft made a surprising amount of room down below. She has a double aft cabin, L shaped galley, separate heads and 2 more berths in the saloon. Great fun to sail, this fin keel version comes complete with an SBS twin axle road trailer and Plastimo tender.
Seller willing to split package for flexibility in price.

Accommodation and layout
The First 235 makes really clever use of the interior space providing features often not found on a boat of this size. On descending the steps into the saloon, to port is the L shaped galley which has a sink with manually pumped cold water, Origo 3000 twin burner hob, ice box and a variety of storage. Behind of the galley is the entrance to the aft double berth and there are 2 further berths in the saloon. Brand new seating/ mattress upholstery installed and teak work replaced (trim and companionway etc.) early 2019.
To starboard is a cleverly designed head / navigation station. When in use for navigation the chart table slides out from under the cockpit seating. When the head is used a lift up panel and sliding door provide privacy and the chart table slides out of the way. The head is located under the chart table seat. A Jabsco Sea toilet is fitted but at present there is no holding tank.

SBS twin axle road trailer
Plastimo 2 person tender (2016 in "as new condition")
