Why First 24 ?

Modern

Advanced GRP vacuum infusion, very light structure, modern hull shape, deep keel and twin rudders define the boat's character and sailing experience – stable, fast and easy-to-control modern planing sailing boat.

SMART

Interior is one ample open space with enough comfort and all key living onboard elements. She can comfortably sleep 4 adults and has a foldable indoor/outdoor table and even dedicated place for a chemical toilet.

Mobile

Retractable keel makes road transport, winter storage and slip launching easier than ever. Provisional mast crane makes you independent of on-land facilities. On the water, she enables you to discover the most hidden and shallow places.

SAFE

Despite being modern and fast, she is very safe. Insubmersibility chambers make her unsinkable, the swinging keel will save the structure in case of grounding and a well-balanced twin rudder system gives you full control.

Sailing Experience

First 24 will show her true nature under the sails. A flat, modern planing hull and a deep ballasted keel deliver a fast and fun sailing experience. The hull shape and the deep swinging keel result in high boat stability, and the twin rudders ensure complete control in any conditions. Because of the very light hull, she'll move and keep moving even in the slightest wind breezes. Thanks to a spacious cockpit design, you'll enjoy easy handling in a solo, double-handed or fully crewed setup whether you are relaxing on an afternoon sailing, battling on a club race, or cruising with your family. In any setup, she will surprise you with fun, comfortable and relaxed sailing.

Living onboard

Interior welcomes you with one big open-space saloon that can easily accommodate up to 4 adults, 2 on the bow V-berth and 2 on smart extendable side berths. It provides all essential amenities you can expect on a modern 7,30 m boat – crew bags for personal belongings, storage under the benches, indoor/outdoor tables and a dedicated place for the chemical toilet in the back of the saloon. For technical storage, there is a big space under the cockpit area, which is accessible from the outside. The sizeable and clean open-cockpit area offers an excellent ratio between comfort and sailing experience. Wide side benches, together with a stern bench, provide a great relaxing place; they also keep you connected and close to nature as the cockpit can easily welcome 4 or 5 sailors.
