About this Sailboat:

1993 Beneteau F265,
The Beneteau First 265 is a fast and comfortable racer/cruiser known for its varnished
cherry interior and superior ventilation. Buck Aye comes with many upgrades and a
comprehensive equipment list. She has proven herself on extended cruises and
performed well around the buoy racing. The custom trailer built in 2009 adds to her
versatility by permitting road travel and transportation for winter storage.

• Primary winches added to cockpit (16 ST Lewmar self tailing). This is a
significant improvement over the factory design, which used the cabin top
winches as the genoa winches. This change includes custom jib track cars with
Garhauer cars and replacing the standard cabin top tracks with teak handrails.
The workmanship for this customization is first rate and is indistinguishable
from a factory installation
