Built by Beneteau in 1981 to a Berret design, the FIRST 32 is an attractive cruiser/racer. Her layout and design was ahead of her time and one of the first models under 40ft to offer a modern layout with an aft cabin and aft heads
In present ownership for 17 years she is in good cosmetic condition, her sails are pretty much as new. We think a good value, ideal for cruising or a bit of club racing.
