Broker's Comments

The German Frers designed First 456 is well respected as a strong cruiser racer and this one comes with spinnaker and Drifter with sock. So if racing is your thing…
This is the 4 cabin 3 heads version with the forward 2 cabins being twin bunks. She has been with the same liveaboard owners for the last 22 years, who have cruised her up and down the Caribbean. She needs some attention but all the basics are there.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
