FYS Comments

The First 35s5 was one of the revolutionary range by Beneteau with the interiors designed by Phillipe Starck.

“Diva” has been owned by the current owner since new and he has done many miles in her (hence the high engine hours!). A nice performance cruiser that has “done it” once and is looking to do it again!
