Why first 27 ?

Modern & FAST

Light vacuum-infused hull, modern design and deep low-centre-of-gravity keel allow us to make these sailboats significantly faster, which defines the boat's character – fast, stable and safe planing sailing experience. 

Safe

Very high stability, unsinkable hull due to three insubmersability chambers, crash-box, inboard engine and balanced twin rudders for complete control are all resulting in the fact that safety is one of her strongest points.

Under control

Carefully thought-out cockpit ergonomy, minimised and simplified deck controls, double winches and perfectly balanced steering system assure easy handling in single-handed, double-handed or fully-crewed setup.

Smart

Thanks to practical, modular and smart design features, the interior of this 8m pocket cruiser offers a surprising comfort level with all vital cruising elements, including separated marine toilette.

Sailing Experience

The main promise and differentiation of First 27 are her performance and unique sailing experience. Again and again, she will surprise you by getting in a plan in as little as 12 k of wind. A stable hull is sourcing its stability from the wide and flat on the waterline and the lead T-bulb keel. Increased bow volume, accompanied with a balanced twin-rudder steering system, keeps you in complete control, no matter if you are sailing upwind or safely planing downwind. Easy boat handling comes from carefully thought-out boat design and cockpit ergonomics, whether sailing solo, double-handed or fully crewed. Planing sensation and excitement will become your afternoon sailing routine.

Living onboard

While being as fast as most racers, she offers a surprising level of comfort. The clean and minimalistic light-weight interior offers all main amenities for onboard living. She is designed to sleep up to 6 adults, 2 in the bow cabin and up to 4 in a very bright open-space saloon, also equipped with a removable table and fridge. In the midsection, you'll find a galley with a gas burner and a sink with fresh water. Thanks to inventive, foldable magnetic doors, the midsection can be converted into a proper marine toilet with a black water tank or used as a front cabin extension. A big and open cockpit welcomes you with comfortable benches, a removable indoor/outdoor table and a bathing ladder with a shower on the stern.
