If you're one of the fortunate few who have experienced the pure joy of sailing, you are probably familiar with the First range. These finely tuned sailboats are meant to join in the dance between the wind, the water and you. If you're new to sailing or even thinking about it, make First your starting point. You won't be disappointed.
The First 35 combines all the racing experience Beneteau designers have garnered over the years with a new level of onboard livability to create an "uber" cruiser of effortless speed and all-day comfort. Innovations like her tilting wheel and German sheet system will have you preforming like a seasoned skipper. Below deck, two ample cabins and a fully-equipped galley make her your new home at sea.
With her slender profile and generous sail plan, the First 25 introduces an entirely new level of speed and maneuverability to coastal cruising. Below deck is a surprisingly roomy and bright salon making onboard comfort standard even when you decide to stretch her sea legs.
The First 22 is the teacher of the First range, designed to be one of the best sail training vessels on the market. Her quick yet forgiving handling gives students a taste of what real sailing is like, while her hull featuring positive floatation and extended cockpit keep safety the number one priority.
The First 20 was designed to be the springboard for every sailor from future Americaâ??s Cup skippers to those who just feel more free on the water. Her racing genes are evident when you first take the tiller, but she makes no concessions when it comes to safety, comfort and easy handling.
