Broker Remarks

Beneteau First 45 for sale.  A very comfortable family cruising boat that boasts an outrageous turn of speed, and great handling characteristic. Easily used for club racing, and just as easily take your friends across the Atlantic on the Arc (and win?!) or just hop around the local cruising grounds. She has a comprehensive inventory and has had very light use during her current ownership. On deck and in the cockpit there has been a substantial emphasis on styling and ergonomics, and everything is taken into consideration to enhance the lines of the boat.  The interior is contemporary and well thought out, with good levels of natural light and ventilation enhanced by the light wood joinery. A boat to cruise happily in comfort. A stunner and looking as new.
