A truly fabulous performance cruiser from the winning combination of Beneteau-Bruce Farr-
the Beneteau First 45f5 exudes a timeless elegance without compromising on her stunningly
A sure-fire head-turner since its launch way back in 1990, this incredibly comfortable and easyto-
handle yacht still
remains one of our favourites
Now still in its second ownership since new, "Gee Wizz" has been lovingly cared for by an
enthusiastic sailor. She is
now reluctantly placed on the market in ready-to-sail and fully serviced condition.
Annual pontoon berth contract available for take-over. Must be seen to be truly appreciated
The Sailboat had just been featured in a majoy motion picture to be released in early 2019.
