The Beneteau First 345 was designed as a moderate displacement racer/cruiser, and much of its popularity has been because of its success in blending the two functions. In fact, it could be said that the First is a racing boat that contains a cruising interior. The architect is Jean Berret, a Frenchman noted for his cruising and racing designs.
Within the Beneteau model line, the First series represents the performance-oriented designs. The fin keel and spade rudder of the 345, coupled with a shallow bottom, have minimal wetted surface. The keel comes in either a deep (6' 4") or shoal draft (4' 10") version, this is the deep keel version.
Bottom Paint was done 2 years ago, 2 gallons of bottom paint come
with the boat.
