Broker's Comments

The Beneteau First 29's perform very well and also have good accommodation to make them very suitable for cruising or racing. This one has the right set up to race with the tuff luff foresail system and a set of sails to fit it; but it also has a furling unit available with the furling genoa.
The boat and sails have been lightly used since 2011. The hull looks good as do the decks and the side windows have been replaced. Inside the head linings have been replaced throughout; the woodwork could do with a coat of varnish perhaps, but that's about it.
