Beneteau 235 sail number 15. Our new boat, name to be decided on.
Emmeline It is as a girl's name is
pronounced EM-a-leen. It is of Old French and Old German origin; Emilia which means to rival, excel, or emulate, which is what the Beneteau First 235, F235 does.
- "The Beneteau First 235 is exceptionally well designed by the
Finot Group, which patterned her after their Mini-Transat,
which was before its time, mimicking hull shapes of racing
boats today. She is very well-built, fitted out like a much
bigger boat. Indeed, this is about as many big boat features
as any designer has ever gotten into a 24’ hull." -
