Beneteau First 235

was in many ways ahead of its time. The plumb bow and wide beam carried well aft made a surprising amount of room down below. She has a double aft cabin, L shaped galley, separate heads and 2 more berths in the saloon. Great fun to sail, this fin keel version comes complete with an SBS twin axle road trailer and Plastimo tender.

Seller willing to split package for flexibility in price.


Hull and deck in white GRP. Stainless steel pulpit and push-pit fittings connected by single guard wire. Wide cockpit with large locker to starboard. Transom hung rudder with tiller steering and transom mounted outboard. Fin keel with draft of 1.16 metres.

  • Antifouled Feb 2019.


Vessel is powered by a transom mounted Honda BF6A 6hp four stroke outboard engine fitted with a charging loop, bought and fitted in April 2019.

A single 12V battery provides electrical power, this being charged via a solar panel. The boat is fitted with a shore power connection and has a Ctek MXS 7.0 battery charger.

  • Honda BF6A 6hp outboard - New April 2019

Sails and Rigging

Fractional rigged Bermudan sloop with deck stepped alloy mast and spars (Z Spar) and stainless wire rigging. Running rigging led aft to the cockpit for ease of use. Slab reefing mainsails (3 reefs), with Lazy Jack bag and furling genoa. Barton boom strut fitted.

The standing rigging was newly rigged in Feb 2019.

The sail wardrobe includes:

  • Laminate Mainsail by Hyde Sails - Said to be in "fair condition"
  • Laminate Mainsail by Goacher Sails - Said to be in "good condition"
  • Laminate Genoa by Hyde Sails - Said to be in "fair condition"
  • Laminate Genoa by Goacher Sails - Said to be in "good condition"
  • Conventional Spinnaker by Hyde Sails - Said to be in "excellent condition" 

Accommodation and layout

The First 235 makes really clever use of the interior space providing features often not found on a boat of this size. On descending the steps into the saloon, to port is the L shaped galley which has a sink with manually pumped cold water, Origo 3000 twin burner hob, ice box and a variety of storage. Behind of the galley is the entrance to the aft double berth and there are 2 further berths in the saloon. Brand new seating/ mattress upholstery installed and teak work replaced (trim and companionway etc.) early 2019.

To starboard is a cleverly designed head / navigation station. When in use for navigation the chart table slides out from under the cockpit seating. When the head is used a lift up panel and sliding door provide privacy and the chart table slides out of the way. The head is located under the chart table seat. A Jabsco Sea toilet is fitted but at present there is no holding tank.
