Beneteau’s First 35 Carbon Edition is an attempt to find the right racer/cruiser balance and it appears they have done a great job.

If you like performance and comfort in a semi custom looking package then this should be a yacht to consider, perfect for holidays afloat, around the cans racing or heading up to race week...
