The lifting keel Beneteau First 24 combines great sailing performance with a practical layout down below. 5 berths in an open plan saloon into V berth plus aft double cabin and separate heads. In mixed condition - the hull and deck seem in good order along with the saloon but the aft cabin and heads are in need of attention. A great opportunity for someone to bring this boat back into very good condition for her age. Comes complete with a twin axle road trailer.
