"Roma" is a sound example of this classic 1980's model First 25 from Beneteau. When the First 25 was designed by Jean-Marie Finot, his aim was to build a safe, family cruising boat with good performance and the ability to be competitive at club racing level. The design and layout of the First 25 makes a super family weekend boat. She has been regularly used and is in fair condition for her age. There is also a Honda T20 inflatable dinghy and 2.3hp outboard available by separate negotiation.
The yacht is located on a swinging mooring a short boat ride away from our offices. To arrange an appointment to view please call 015394 88050.
