With a broad-beam planing hull, the four latest First models promise lots of speed and fun! Affordable and safe to sail, the aim of these small sailing yachts is to bring sensations worthy of a racing yacht within everyone’s reach. Everything on board has been designed to really simplify manoeuvres for out-and-out recreational sailing.

 

Easily affordable!

Easily affordable, these “sea spiders” have revived the unadulterated competitive spirit of the first First sailing yachts, while recalling the Wizz, also built by BENETEAU in the early 80s. This unique lightweight boat left its mark on a whole generation and, at the time, contributed considerably to the growth of competitive sailing in Europe. Although the sensations and peasure you get from the First 14, 18, 24 and 27 are similar, there have been some very big strides forward in technology.

Behind the simple clean lines of these wonderful sailing yachts, is a high-tech spirit, also present on the new Figaro Beneteau 3. The
four new First sailing yachts have a carbon mast, a very stable hull, and a wide cockpit. They also have the best sail area-to-weight
ratio on the market. In other words, they are the lightest and fastest sailing yachts in their category!

Wonderful sailing yachts!

Designed like a skiff, the First 14 places the emphasis on the sheer pleasure of surfing, for athletic outings solo, two-handed, or with
children or teenagers. With its feather weight (67 kg), this dinghy can be carried on the roof of a car or towed on a small trailer. The
boat can be rigged to suit crew numbers and ability, so that everyone aged between 7 and 90 can enjoy the fun and thrills.

Boasting berths, a small galley and chemical toilets, the First 18, 24 and 27 combine the strengths of a sport boat with those of a
dayboat. They are highly versatile, with plenty to please seasoned racers. Novices in search of surfing sensations to share with
friends or family will also enjoy the pleasure of day trips or adventure raids. As they can be towed, they can be masted and ready to
sail within one hour. Their lifting keel makes them easy to launch from a slipway and they can also be beached.
Affordable and accessible, the four new First sailing yachts are to be sold at a really competitive price.

Inaugurating an incredibly lively 7th generation, the First 14, 18, 24 and 27 integrate all the features of the Seascapes on which the
new First line is based. In doing so they have given a new meaning to the line, with First standing for: Fun, Intuitive, Robust, Simple,
Technological. Watch this space for future developments.
