About this BENETEAU First 305

English

I Bought Viane in 2019 and embarked on a complete overhaul including replacing all Running Rigging (2020), Standing Rigging (2020), Guard Rails (2021), Tracks and Cars (2021), Mainsail (2021), Boom (2021), Adding a Rod Kicker (2021), Feathering Proppeler (2021) new AIS / VHF (2021) and New Chartplotter, I also removed all sagging headliner, sanded and painted using marine grade "Supermarine White" Paint, During this time i have been taking her out whenever possible however due to a new arrival (Not a boat, a baby) I have limited time to go and sail her or complete the outstanding works i would like to complete. Due to this i have decided to sell her as i dont want her to sit around for the next year or so gathering dust.

Over £15,000.00 spent in the last year alone!

Please see a breif extract below

"The Beneteau First 305 was first introduced in the mid 1980's and has become one of the most proven yachts of this size ever built .The initial high build standard has stood up very well over time, and with good maintenance these yachts look as stylish and modern to day as when they were first launched. Built very much as a family cruiser and charter yacht with a good sailing performance, these deep draft boats(1.75mts plus)are still very popular family racing cruisers in many yacht clubs. For charter these models have all had Sun Biminis, Electric Anchor Windlasses, Hot water, Deck showers, full engine refits etc added over the years, so they are now ideal for one or two couples, or families of five or six with small children. They are easily handled, and being tiller steered are ideal for short handed crews or novice skippers."
