Designed by Jean Marie Finot the First 235 boasts a large cabin with a spacious feel, comfortable headroom and ample lighting. The main salon is roomy and can accommodate 4-5 people comfortably.  There is privacy in a separate double aft cabin.  The galley is L-Shaped and fully equipped on the port side.  Even the starboard toilet compartment is private and cleverly converts to a chart table.  The deck is big and has big boat features like the bow roller and functional toe rail for safety. Her deck-stepped, fractional rig offers optimum horse power from the large mainsail, which minimizes headsail changes. Dubbed as a racer/cruiser, Athena has the sail inventory to help you win races, or simply cruise about as you see fit. She’s fast and responsive, sure-footed with the long waterline.  She is easy to handle. This is the winged keel version.  The owner is moving up into a larger boat. They claim it has been a good family boat for their 19 years of sailing Athena. She is an excellent cruiser and racer that rewards skill and technique, but is also comfortable. While cosmetically the boat is showing her age, she sails beautifully. The Beneteau First 235 is a well-known and popular boat with loads of information available on the Web attesting to its many fine sailing qualities as well as the quality of construction.
