Broker's Comments

A wonderful mixture of cruiser and racer, this very well presented First 310 from Beneteau is the 310R version with the deeper fin keel for increased performance.
Quite unusually at this size she is wheel steered, which sets her apart from many other 310's and similar sized family cruisers. Yachting World's sail test review called her 'Easily manoevered' and 'great fun to sail'.
Her cherry interior offers 2 fine double berths and a spacious saloon area and would be perfect for family overnights or weekends with friends up and down the coast
Lifted out every year and anti-fouled, it is very evident that the current owners have kept up a very strong programme of maintenance, including recent investment in North sails which have helped deliver lots of success on the local competitive racing scene,
A great all-in sailing package and well worth viewing..
