Advertiser's comments

The Beneteau First 24 combines great sailing performance with a practical layout down below. This example has a good range of navigation equipment and internally could quickly be brought back to a tidy condition. Externally it is in need of a deep clean and the replacement of windows. Priced to reflect its current condition, "Highlander" will make an ideal project for someone willing to give it some time.
