Beneteau First 456 - 1985 - revised price £29,950 only due to the vendor's very sad health circumstance. 
The Beneteau First Series from the mid 1980’s designed by German Frers were arguably 
some of the finest yachts built by Beneteau from this era. They were intended to compete directly with Nautor Swan's line of German Frers designed models.  
As such, they are fast, stiff and share many quality construction details and styling features with the Swans, not found in other Beneteau Series. 
With her Frers designed hull, and a powerful triple-spreader rig, she makes a fantastic fast cruising yacht! 
This example has been in the current ownership for over 10 years, and in that time they 
have cruised extensively between Norway and the western Mediterranean. 
Upgrades over recent years have included a new retractable bow thruster, an electric 
halyard winch, a new anchor windlass, a Garmin chart plotter/radar unit, and much more. 
Please Note: The revised price - down from an original price of £65,000 - reflects one of the current owner's very sad and pressing health circumstance. 
There's a lot of boat here in which to go swift, long distance cruising and for not much 
Please contact on 01752 228855 or email us for further details or to arrange a viewing
