A great opportunity to purchase a Beneteau First Class 8. This example has some great carbon/aramid/membrane sails, mostly 2014/15. IRC registered with a rating of 0.929 and ready to race. The whole keel mechanism has recently been overhauled. Dry sailed from this marina. Her partners have had so much fun with her that they will be moving to a larger race boat when she is sold.
