We are proud to label this boat sold. On her way to Santiago, Chile!



I have got to give Ray Woosley and Jessica Smith all the thanks and praise ! Ray was so patient and extremely helpful. We started looking for my "perfect " boat early May but I couldn't find THE boat I wanted. Ray kept looking and sending me different boats from all over the country and never wavered I finally found one I wanted and Ray made it happen, nearly 2 months later I must add . Highly recommend Pop Yachts and Ray Woosley!!

1989 Beneteau First 285 Sloop Sailboat in Marco Island, Florida

Stock #170451

The hard to find Beneteau First 285 is the perfect sailboat for coastal cruising and overnighting. With room to sleep up to six in forward and aft cabins plus dinette seating that converts into two single bunks, she's got plenty of room for a family or group of friends to sleep overnight on the boat.

This wing keeled racer draws less than 4 feet, allowing her to get into shallower water than most sailboats, making her perfect for sailing the Gulf of Mexico, the Bahamas, and the Caribbean.

Able to carry up to 6 comfortably for a night or two away from shore, she makes the most of her 9' beam with a generous cabin that allows all but the tallest of sailors to stand up straight. She features a full galley with propane range, sink, and icebox, a full head with manual pump toilet and shower, a forward V-berth, aft queen stateroom, and a folding dinette table amidships.

When the winds aren't blowing or when maneuvering into port, the closed loop cooled 18hp Volvo Penta diesel motor provides the perfect amount of fuel-efficient power to get to shore. She sips just a quart an hour of fuel from her 8-gallon fuel tank. The motor's alternator provides power to charge the two house batteries that provide plenty of charge to the few accessories that need it. She comes with a portable inverter for those couple of desired 120VAC electrical items.

Sailing this bundle of joy is made easy with the single-handed rigging.
