"Mitsy" is a lovely example of the Beneteau First 211. Built in 2003 she has been well cared for both inside and out. The heavy swing keel helps the First 211 sail like a larger yacht while allowing shallower areas to be explored. Well equipped for lake / coastal cruising she would be an ideal first step up to a larger boat or weekend cruiser. Either way she will be great fun to own and sail. A number of upgrades have been made in the last 2 years and she has a new road trailer bought in 2018. Tender with outboard available by separate negotiation.
GRP hull in white, with a balsa core deck and superstructure. Swing keel with twin lifting rudders and tiller steering. A Spinlock tiller extension was added in 2017. Draft 1.80m keel down and 0.70m keel up. Teak toe rail and cockpit seating. Single guard wire, non-slip finish to deck and Jack Says for security.
2003 4 stroke Yamaha 4hp outboard motor mounted on a lifting transom bracket. Single 12V battery provides domestic power and is charged via a solar panel.
