THIS IS A NEW BOAT AND IN STOCK, READY TO GO! - 25% Discount! The Beneteau First 18 is a boat that relies on performance thanks to a very light displacement. She is ideal for beginners due to the set up being very fast. The snuffer on deck makes for quick manoeuvring in the cockpit, sending up and balancing the spinnaker in a flash. She has a laminated top square mainsail and lifting keel. She is right outside our Port Hamble office. Part exchange possible.
