Just in, this fine example of the Beneteau First 211, ‘Blue Panda’, is just back on the market and she is available with a trailer and a mooring at Brighton Marina until June 2023!

The Beneteau First 211 is a high performance trailer sailer. A combination of a 6 foot deep, fully ballasted lifting keel and twin retractable rudders give these pocket rockets great pointing ability and stiffness. Yet, the First 211s offer plenty of comfort and safety with all lines leading back to the cockpit, stack-pack lazy jacks and lots of buoyancy. There’s room for 4 adults down below in a stylishly designed cabin, including a chemical wc, sink and stove.

Blue Panda comes with a road trailer, a new Jeckells genoa with brand new furler, Raymarine speed & depth, Tillerpilot, Chartplotter, Clipper Wind system and a 2014 Mariner 5hp outboard motor.

Having been little used in the previous 4 years Blue Panda was given a huge overhaul by us a couple of years ago to prepare her for new owners. Work carried out included:
A September 2019 independent survey – all significant items addressed
Brand new standing rigging (2020)
Most running rigging replaced with new (2020)
Brand new stainless steel keel brackets + spacers (2020)
New rudder bearings (2020)
Brand new Clipper mast-top wind transducer and cockpit display (2020)
Freshly valeted North main sail (2020)
Internal and external woodwork sanded and varnished (2020)
Ground tackle serviced (2020)
Brand new ship’s battery added (2020)
Thetford 335 chemical wc added (2020)
Newer (2014) Mariner 5hp outboard added (2020)
A mast lifting kit added (2020)
A solar panel and regulator added (2020)
We added the owner’s tiller pilot with a bespoke bench mounting and electric socket (2020)
We replaced the bilge pump (2020)
Re-sealed the portholes (2020)

Since then Blue Panda has also had:

A replacement outboard engine bracket (2021)
A brand new Jeckells furling genoa added (2021)
A brand new genoa furler (2021)
Two hanked-on headsails with forestay (2020)
A chartplotter (2020)
A new VHF aerial with cable (2021)
A new gooseneck fitting (2021)
Two new layers of antifoul (2021)
Topsides compounded and machine polished (2021)

As a result of all this work Blue Panda is in great shape!
