First Course is a Beneteau First 235 which is one of the finest boats in this size range and exciting to sail. It packs a great deal into such a small package, mixing performance and usability in a very compelling fashion.Not many 23 foot boats have a galley, ice box, sink, and 2 burner stove, directly across from a fully enclosable marine head which doubles as a working nav station with slide out table. It also has an aft sleeping area and an interior that doesn’t demand you bend double at the waist. Or somewhere a 6'3 person can stretch out without jamming feet into a corner? It has the very same toe rail, chocks, cleats, and other fittings as found on the Beneteau/Jeanneau 50? And combines all this with performance that embarrasses many with longer water lines? In short it's an excellent trailer-sailer an this is a well kept version of one.

This is really a very nice trailer-sailer - nice lines and plenty of accommodation inside. She has a spare set of sails and the engine was new in August 2015. She is not showing her age very much at all. Unfortunately there is no trailer, but still good value for money.
