1987 Beneteau First 405 - San Diego $65,000

Hi all,

Posting our beautiful First 405. She is currently set up for daysailing with very simple systems including a composting head and only two through-hulls for peace of mind and simple maintenance I have a survey from just over 3 years ago when we bought the boat. Comes with main, 120% genoa and an asymmetrical spinnaker with a sock. I may also sell the Trinka 10 I use as a tender which has a sailing rig and good oars.

These boats have an issue with the headliner foam deteriorating, resulting in sagging headliners. This is particularly an issue in the aft cabin which doesn't have the attractive wooden battens that keep the liner up in the rest of the boat. Luckily, the previous owner did the hard work of removing the headliner and foam from the aft cabin.

Boat has new masthead anchor light, VHF antenna and wiring, as well as new propane lines to the galley. She's ready to go; we sail her every week with my 3 kids and 2 parents and overnight her fairly regularly as well.

I'm selling because we're looking to downsize - our visions of more extensive cruising have not come to pass & I'm looking for a smaller lighter boat that my young kids can take a more active role in sailing. I'm particularly interested in fast day sailors and Corsair/Farrier trimarans in the unlikely event that a trade might make sense.

Attaching some pics to get things started - I will work on getting more & newer ones soon; the attached are from a few years ago. Give a call or text anytime - happy to discuss.

Re: 1987 Beneteau First 405 - San Diego $50,000

Price drop!

Funny to see my original posting - glad we didn't sell her quickly! Plans have changed again in the other direction & we're upgrading to a larger vessel for longer range cruising! We may have found a replacement so now seriously for sale at $50,000. I'll try and get some newer pics later this week.

Just completed a significant engine refurbishment, with a new impeller pump, high pressure injector pump and remanufactured injectors as well. Purring like a kitten!
