Re: First 35
I don't think Beneteau made a 'First 35' in the '80s.. There was a First 345, and later a First 35S5, quite different boats, but I can't find a 'First 35' per se.
I suspect you're thinking of the 345?
Ah... Well... Actually, Beneteau began building First 35's in 1980. See 1980 Beneteau First 35 Boats For Sale
