BENETEAU FIRST 345

Broker's description:

This Beneteau First 345 is a rare 2 cabin owner's version of this popular cruiser / racer. She has been very lightly used in recent years and has never been chartered. She has shoal draft so can get into shallow anchorages where her deep draft sister ships can't. These Beneteau 345s have a good sailing performance and a sea kindly manner. She is currently winterised ashore. 

This Beneteau First 345 has vice free handling under power and she is easy to sail shorthanded with her furling genoa and lazy jacks / stack-pack bag system for her mainsail. Tiller steering gives a responsive feel to the helm and frees up space in the large cockpit.

Below decks the Volvo Penta engine is located under the companionway steps and has always been regularly serviced. A galley is located to port and aft of this a heads / shower compartment. There is a full sized chart table and navigation area located opposite the galley to starboard and a double aft cabin accessed aft of the chart table. The saloon has an ‘L’ shaped settee to port and a straight settee to starboard either side of the saloon table. Both double as sea berths whilst on passage. The owners double cabin is located in the forepeak area and is much larger than on the 3 cabin version and has good stowage also.

This Beneteau First 345 is sensibly priced. She would benefit from interior varnish work but otherwise appears in good condition. A good choice for a sailor on a budget who appreciates the sailing qualities of these sporty cruisers.

Price: reduced to 15,500 euros
