Advertiser's comments

The 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 Seago tender.

Accommodation and layout

The First 235 makes really clever use of the inside space providing special often not found on a boat of this dimensions. On descending the steps into the bar, to seaport is the L shaped galley which has a sink with manually pumped chilly water, gimballed 2 burner spirit hob, ice box and a variety of stowage. Behind of the galley is the entrance to the aft double dock and there are 2 further docks in the bar.
To starboard is a cleverly crafted front / direction station. When in use for direction the blueprint desk slides out from under the cockpit accommodation. When the front is pre-owned a lift up panel and sliding door provide privacy and the blueprint desk slides out of the way. The front is located under the blueprint desk chair. A Jabsco Sea toilet is tailored but at present there is no holding basin.
