This Beneteau First 30E, built in 1983 is a fine example of this well proven fast and comfortable cruiser racer from Beneteau. She is presented in very good condition and benefits from a new Mainsail and Genoa that have only been fitted in 2015. This Beneteau First 30E has good accommodation with 7 berths in three cabins and would make an ideal first yacht for a family or a solo sailor. The owner is only selling as they wish to move up to a large yacht. Well worth an early viewing. A berth in Dover Marina is also available.
