Sailing BoatsYachtsBeneteauFirst 260 SpiritBeneteau First 260 Spirit. Bluebell is a fast little cruiser/racer.
A fun but practical boat for a small family and very competitive if you fancy some light racing. She is a great boat to sail; fast, responsive and well-balanced with exhilarating acceleration and dinghy like manoeuvrability. In 15-20kn of wind she easily makes 6-7kn speed and on a broad reach reaches 9-10kn. This is the fin keel versions which allows better passage to windward and does not have the maintenance requirements of the lift keel.
She has been very well maintained, is in great condition and can be viewed out of the water in Gosport.
