1985 Beneteau First 456 / $99,000

We just arrived in Santa Cruz from a 16 day 2500 mile passage from Hawaii, ending an odyssey which has stretched around the world for 17 years and 75,000 miles. Its now time for someone else to take over Klondike, our Beneteau First 456, and we hope that you will enjoy it as much as we have. The boat has been set up for bluewater shorthanded cruising, with the emphasis on quality and reliability.

For a general description of the boat, see Beneteau First 456

Forgot to mention the asymmetric cruising chute with sock and the 3KVA transformer to utilize both 110v and 220v dock power.
