Description: Caribe a First 456 is one of the early Freres designed Beneteau First series. She was launched in 1983. The First 456 is listed in John Krestschmers "Boats for A Serious Ocean," and John is very familiar with this boat having sailed on her many times. John has this to say about Caribe and 456's "This is a great sailing boat, very well engineered and built, and often misunderstood. This sleek cruiser shares a name with today's Beneteaus and little else. One of the original First Series designed for the Admirals Cup, she is a fast seaworthy boat that can stand up to a blow. My friend Steve Maseda, an accomplished sailor, has sailed his boat all over the Atlantic, including a big blow off Hatteras a few years ago. I have logged a lot of miles aboard too, and love the way the boat handles. Just last weekend we had 25-30 knots in the Gulf Stream on the way to the Bahamas and no problems at all. Steve has a solent rig set up, a double headsail sloop as Perry calls it, and it works brilliantly."
We have sailed Caribe to the Caribbean, the Bahamas, Bermuda, Mexico and up and down the East Coast. She and her systems have been updated and well maintained. She recently spent 3 years in the Caribbean and is ready to take off again.
Caribe is an owner's model with a double pullman berth in the forward cabin, with ensuite head, and an aft cabin with double berth as well, and adjoining aft head. She was modified by Beneteau at the request of the original owner to replace a dressing table in the forward cabin and the sea berths with storage and increase th water capacity to 220 gallons.
