About this Bénéteau Boats First 235


The popular

Benteau First 235

 provides great sailing with a well thought out, cleverly designed layout down below. Lift keel version (draft 0.66 to 1.75m). Accommodation for 4 with aft double berth and saloon berths. Galley and separate heads. The boat is in fair condition for her age and has an almost new Genoa, but she does have osmotic blisters and is priced to sell.

This is a provisional advert.


Constructed in GRP to a Group Finot design. Very popular boat built in the late 80's to early 90's. This model has the added bonus of a lifting keel (draft 0.66m to 1.75m) allowing shallower creeks and areas to be explored.

Decent cockpit with large locker to starboard. Moulded seats and coamings make time in cockpit or at the helm comfortable.

Transom hung rudder with tiller steering.

Moulded nonslip surfaces. Large anchor well forward.



Vessel powered by a 2009, 5hp Tohatsu 4-stroke outboard. This is situated on a transom bracket with throttle in cockpit. Engine fitted with charging coil to charge the battery.

12V electric panel with fuses and battery isolator.

  • Charging coil for charging battery
  • Engine serviced November 2020

Sails and Rigging

Sloop rigged yacht with deck stepped aluminium spars. Adjustable mainsheet traveller in cockpit and all lines led aft for easy sailing.

Boom mounted lazy jack bag. Slab reefing mainsail and roller reefing Genoa with UV strip.

Genoa new late 2019 and said to be in "new condition".
