1989 Beneteau First 285 Cruiser Sailboat in Saint Augustine, Florida

Stock #161645

This Beneteau First 285 is in great condition. It clearly has been well cared for and is ready to meet the sailing needs of its next owner. And if you are new to sailing this would be a great way to start. Everything you need is here and ready to go. And she's rigged to comfortably single handle her from the cockpit.

This Beneteau First has a sleek, clean design, a roller-furling jib, and she's rigged to comfortably single handle her from the large cockpit.

All the standing and running rigging appear to be in very serviceable condition. She has two Lewmar 30 2-spd self-tailing winches in the cockpit and 2 Lewmar single speed winches forward.

Sail inventory includes 2 jibs (1 reg & 1 oversized), a spinnaker, and a main.

The ground tackle includes a Lewmar Delta plow anchor and plenty of chain and rode. Again, the ground tackle appears very serviceable but the actual length of chain and rode are unknown.

Below, the cabin is well laid out with berths fore and aft and the galley, nav station, and head/shower are mid-cabin. She can comfortably sleep six.

There is plenty of storage, a gas 2 burner stove, and a large icebox.

While not under sail the boat is powered by a 2002 Volvo Penta 17 HP diesel engine.

Information On Condition

Overall this Beneteau First 285 appears to be in very good condition. The bimini and the mainsail cover both appear to be in good condition. Decks are clean and uncluttered and the entire vessel appears to be well cared for.

If you are new to sailing, or if you're looking for a small sailboat for short trips and weekends out you'd be hard pressed to find a better option than this Beneteau First 285.
