Beneteau 285
The First 285 is a popular small yacht from the Beneteau stable. A very roomy boat for its size, with a good sized double cabin aft and a smaller double forward. We consider the forward cabin too small for comfort for two adults so this boat is best suited for a couple or a family with smaller children. An easily managed sail plan of furling headsail and main with lazy jacks makes for comfortable cruising.
Launched in 1991,
Finesse is quite an old boat by world charter standards but is in fact the newest boat of her size available for charter in NZ. Like all of our boats she is maintained in very good condition.
