40 years of iconic brand heritage. The signature features of the FIRST range have not changed since its conception in 1977 – these boats have always been designed for sailors who enjoy club racing as much as cruising, joining them into one cohesive product line, the proverbial best of both worlds. Today, BENETEAU takes another step in this direction with the launch of the FIRST range.
These boats offer simplicity, performances, and comfortable interiors and cockpits geared towards daysailing and coastal cruising. Renewing the competition spirit of the brand, they represent a true adaptation to the needs and expectations of the widest variety of sailors.
A smart pocket cruiser, a joyful day-sailor or a solid club racer – whichever way you choose to use your First 24, she'll be equally ready, with sleeping accommodations for up to four wrapped in an ultramodern performance hull. A completely retractable keel gives you unfettered access to the shallowest cruising grounds and the possibility of quickly launching and retrieving the boat from any ordinary ramp. Her light and stable hull, alu rig, classic backstay and dacron sails make her the ideal holiday cruiser, within operational reach of even the most beginners.
The BENETEAU First 36 has a mission to bridge the gap between high-tech development in the world of racing and mainstream racer-cruisers. To be specific, even the standard version of First 36 will fully plane in a moderate breeze. However, this by itself was not the main challenge for the design and production teams.
The WORLD PREMIERE of the BENETEAU First 36 will be at the Düsseldorf Boat Show in JANUARY 2022.
Flagship of the new FIRST line, the First 27 is unquestionably the fastest and safest cruiser in this size range. Her modern and state-of-the-art design delivers the magic of planing sailing to families, couples, and solo sailors alike, wherever the cruising ground and whatever the weather conditions. A true pocket yacht, she has an inboard Yanmar diesel, a working galley, a real head and plenty of storage, as well as room for up to six crew members for overnight adventures.
Building on the legacy of the legendary BENETEAU Wizz, the First 14 reproduces the exhilarating world of fast planing dinghies. Light, accessible, and easy to handle, the boat is perhaps best described as essentially fun, and the quality of her build simplifies maintenance and guarantees worry-free ownership.
