Beneteau235.com website

I'm interested in the Beneteau First 235. There is a website (beneteau235.com) dedicated to that boat and I've tried registering, but with no luck. Does anyone know if the website is still actively maintained?

Cheers

Hello
I know nothing of the website. Think that's a really cool boat though.

Yes. I think so too. It also looks like there was a pretty vibrant forum for the boat at one time.

Re: Beneteau235.com website

yeah the site has not been maintained in quite a while, I was on a kick for a while about the 265 and 285 which I think are subforums there. Same result (2 years ago).

Hmm. Too bad. It looks like it had lots of good info in the forum section...

The site is still active, trust me. Sometimes it takes Kelly a while to get you in the system. I have owned and raced my 235 for 5 years now.

Re: Beneteau235.com website

Hopefully he'll get to my registration info then.

Mind if I ask you a few questions about your 235?

What keel do you have?
Do you trailer launch your boat?
What's your overall impression of the 235?
Does it sail to its PHRF?

Cheers

Sure Neil, no problem.

I have a wing keel, she could point a few degrees higher with the fin but, those are a rare find. I have never trailer launched it but when I bought it we did trailer retrieve it. We have a crane at my club to launch boats and a smaller crane to get our masts up. Whether it sails to it's PHRF is more of the sailors and not the boat. She is competitive but, we still have a way to go as far as our skill level with me and my crew. She is quick and a fun boat to sail. It is a great pocket cruiser, perfect couples boat. This is my 5th season with mine and I wouldn't have it any other way for our sailing area. We are on an inland lake. But, there is a guy that sails out of Italy and he coastal cruised his all the way up to Portugal and back. Great little boat that feels bigger than she is. Can't really go wrong with a Finot designed boat.

Feel free to ask any other questions.

Dan
