Beneteau F235, 1989/90 sailboat for sale

I am selling my beloved 1989/90 Beneteau f235. I list 1989/90 as the title states 1989, but the serial number indicates it is a 1990. That fact slipped by me when I applied for title-which I have in my possession. I am not sure it makes much difference though. When I bought this boat last year, it had been neglected by the former owner. I have spent the past year restoring the boat. She is fully sound, very dry- no musty or interior odors and actively sailing. In fact, in the two races I entered this fall, I placed 1st and 3rd in my class. She is a joy to sail.

Selling price- $7,600.00. Location is Jacksonville, FL

I am selling as I have been offered a great opportunity to start a marine oriented business and simply need the capital to fund the start.

  • Draft- 2’9”- wing keel
  • Displacement- 2,936 lbs.
  • Bridge Clearance- 33’6”
  • Fractional rig with baby stay

  • Jib- hank on, 100% good condition
  • Genoa- hank on, approximately 150%. Good condition
  • Sail cover and jib bag- like new
  • BoomKicker plus traditional block & tackle boom vang for sail trim
  • Lazy Jacks
  • Traveler on cockpit bridge deck
  • 2008 Tohatsu 5hp long shaft engine- tuned, lower gear lube serviced, impeller replaced summer of 2021. Runs great
  • VHF
  • Tri-Color mast head light- not currently connected
  • Origo 2 burner, gimballed stove
  • LED interior lights
  • Manual water supply
  • Cabin cushions in very good shape

    Restoration done in 2021:

  • New AGM West Marine Battery
  • Bottom painted- 2 coats of Sea Hawk AF-33 ablative
  • 2 blisters ground, filled and faired
  • Keel bolts replaced
  • Keel faired and painted with Interprotect Y2000E primer prior to anti-fouling paint
  • Installed brand new RudderCraft Kick-Up Rudder with new ash tiller
  • Tiller extension and tiller tamer
  • Adjustable back stay
  • Leaking holding tank and head removed, thru-hulls professionally glassed over (now only 1 thru-hull for entire boat). 5 gallon camp bucket with snap on and sealing toilet seat with camping waste bags installed in head area. Works great and saves a lot of weight and fuss.
  • Hawkeye depth sounder (new) with glued in-hull transducer (no thru-hull. Never any fouling)
  • Ronstan Line bags in cockpit.
  • All new running rigging (with exception of boom vang line and main halyard- both in good shape)
  • Main & jib halyards, 2 reef points and downhaul (Cunningham) run through blocks and line stoppers to cockpit.
  • New Harken jib bag
  • New hatchboards
  • Most trim replaced with Plasteak (never any more sanding or varnishing). Remaining teak sanded and refinished with Cetol
  • Companionway steps replaced
  • New Beneteau logos/decals applied to cabin trunk

    With cooler weather, I was transitioning to restoring the interior to like new condition. What remains to be done:

  • As with all Beneteaus of this vintage, sagging headliner could be addressed- cosmetic only- not structural
  • Table experienced water damage at some point. The boat is dry now. But the table top is damaged and needs sanding and re-finishing. Again, not structural, but cosmetic. I was even considering formica.
  • Couple of touch up spots for the interior teak. It is not necessary, but the interior teak could use a fresh coat of varnish to really shine.
  • Plastic ports are sound and watertight but older. I have already lined up a local plastic manufacturer to replace with tinted plastic- which would add greatly to the exterior appeal.

    There is no trailer. April 2021 survey is available upon request.
