BENETEAU First 32s5, 1989. A cruiser/racer with the emphasis on performance, the First 32s5 has an ultra modern interior with a stunning match of polished steel, alloy and teak joinery. And her performance matches her sharp looks - definitely a boat to turn heads. This example is in regular use and was re-engined in 2006 and has new sails 2013/15. The owner will consider a part exchange for a similar performance yacht.
