1987 Beneteau First 305 Sloop Sailboat in Grosse Pointe Park, Michigan

Stock #145982

Beneteau sailboats have a tradition of being well built, well-performing sailboats. Designed by world-renowned Jean Berret, the Beneteau First 305 represents a performance-oriented design while still providing accommodations for cruising.

The Beneteau First 305 cockpit is roomy and deep. It has ample bench seating, stern perch seating, and autohelm tiller steering. The coamings and wide side decks protect the cockpit.

Moving about the deck is easy due to the clean deck layout and wide side decks leading forward.

The Beneteau hull is made of uncored reinforced fiberglass with alternating layers of chopped strand, mat and woven roving saturated with polyester resin. Interior stringers, structural bulkheads and interior fiberglass liner and pan reinforce the hull.

To access the cabin area from the cockpit, you descend a three-step entry stair which is also the front engine hatch.

Directly to port is the L-shaped galley. The galley is equipped with a fiddled Optimus 2 burner stove/oven, an icebox, a double SS sink with draw and cabinet storage.

Opposing the galley to starboard is the Nav station. A Kenwood stereo receiver, a Navman VHF, Nav light, electric outlet and electric panel can be found at the Nav station.

Behind the Nav station dedicated bench is the entry door to the enclosed head. The head is outfitted with a manual flush head, sink with faucet, below sink cabinet storage, and portholes to provide natural light and ventilation. Behind the head is an access cabinet where the battery charger, circuit breakers, and water heater are located.

The main salon features bench seating on both the port and starboard sides with a bi-folding table complete with beverage holders between. The salon bench seat cushions are new redone 2017. Each bench seat can be used as a berth to accommodate a crew member.

There is also storage beneath the bench seating, shelf storage behind each seat, and port holes to allow natural light in.

The V-berth sleeps two, contains storage beneath the V-berth base, with a hanging locker to starboard. There is also an opening deck hatch to provide air flow and natural light.

The aft berth also sleeps two and has a solid door for privacy. There is storage beneath the berth base. An opening porthole allows fresh air and natural light into the aft berth area.
