About this Sailboat:

The Beneteau First 375 is a well-built racer/cruiser sailboat with a perfect blend of amenities and sailing design. She is outstanding as both a stable well equipped family cruiser or as a nimble ‘around-the-buoy’ racer. ‘Escapade’ has been well maintained and upgraded by her owner. ‘Escapade’ features a main salon with a folding dining table & plenty of seating, a galley w/ a propane stove/oven, double sink & lots of counter space & cabinetry. The navigation station faces forward, the head includes an electric toilet, shower & sink w/2 opening ports. The forward stateroom is spacious & includes storage, the aft port stateroom features 4 opening ports for fresh air. The helm boasts a Raymarine autopilot, a large steering wheel & 4 ST60 Raymarine instruments w/interfacing to the Garmin GPS at the nav station below. Other features include a 3-bladed Max Prop, Ritchie compass, a Navtech hydraulic backstay adjuster, roller furling, Garhauer rigid boom vang & block, a great sail inventory and much more (See Equipment below).
Most importantly, you will love how this vessel sails fast & true.
