The iconic Beneteau FIRST enhances the fleet with the addition of the F14, F24 & F27 to the range. The FIRST range has evolved over 40 years, offering a light planing dingy FIRST 14 up to the FIRST 53 Yacht including the FIRST SE High Performance.
The signature features of the FIRST range have not changed since inception in 1977. Beneteau FIRST models have been designed for sailors who enjoy club racing as much as cruising.
FIRST – The new FIRST range drawing power from the exhilarating hull design by Samuel Manuard offers an aluminium mast, comfortable interior with a cockpit designed for day sailing and coastal cruising.
FIRST SE Edition – Beneteau First SE Edition builds on the Seascape heritage, encouraging and empowering sailors bringing high-tech performance delivering excitement, performance and fun. High-tech materials allow the boat to be pushed in strong winds while additional sail area empowers sailing in light winds. The mast, boom and bowsprit are carbon fibre with upwind sails created from laminate sailcloth.
FIRST Yacht 53 – the contemporary First 53 Yacht combines comfort and style with true Beneteau First performance. The First 53 Yacht features a full bow, maximum beam aft and twin rudders for ultimate performance. With a flush deck, low coachroof and a sleek modern look, she has all the virtues of a thoroughbred. The First Yacht 53 marks a new era with a top quality mast and deck gear, a powerful sail plan that is easily controlled by a short-handed crew.
