Broker's Comments

Boatshed North Wales are delighted to offer this Beneteau First 26 on brokerage. First impressions are that the boat is presented superbly and appears to be in excellent condition.

Only on the market because the owner's plans have changed, this represents a great opportunity to take ownership of one of these fast cruisers from the Beneteau stable.

This boat has been the subject of numerous recent upgrades including standing and running rigging, headsail, sail cover and sprayhood, fenders, sail bags, interior upholstery and headlinings........ the list goes on! All backed up by a survey carried out in August 2020.

If you're looking for a Beneteau First 26 then look no further - I'd be amazed if you can find a better one on the market at the moment!

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
