Why First 24 SE ?


Ultimate performance & high-tech building technologies: very light, modern vacuum-infused vinyl-ester hull, composite-build swinging keel with lead bulb, carbon-fibre rig and excessive sail area are all delivering the promised performance of the Seascape Edition.


A well-thought cockpit ergonomics, minimised controls, carbon mast without a backstay, light but precise steering system and stable hull significantly simplify boat handling solo, double-handed or fully crewed.


First 24 SE is unsinkable, swinging keel system would protect the structure if you hit the ground and twin rudders always ensure complete control. You'll be able to challenge yourselves and expand your comfort zone safely!


Preferring classical windward-leeward races or exploring new shores through single or double-handed adventure distance races, you'll always enjoy the company of international owners' community.


Light structure and a swinging keel system enable easy road transportation. Handling of the light carbon mast is easy, provisional mast crane makes you independent of on-land facilities, and you can easily launch the boat on the slip.

Sailing Experience

First 24 SE is a true pocket-rocket, defined by a racing background of the design team. Incredible sail area to displacement ratio ensures fast sailing in strong and light wind conditions. Downwind planing in the stronger breezes is a real blast and pure joy because of the stable hull, deep, ballasted keel and twin rudders, which give you complete control. You will enjoy sailing in lighter conditions, too, when she'll react to the slightest wind gusts and easily reach the wind-speeds. Spacious, open and carefully thought-out cockpit ergonomics works in solo, double-handed or fully-crewed setup and guarantee easy handling and comfortable sailing, no matter if you're on relaxed afternoon sailing or racing on one-design regattas.

Living onboard

Interior is minimalistic and very weight-sensitive, but despite its performance, nature still provides all key amenities you can expect on a modern 7,30 m high-performance racer. The big open-space saloon can easily sleep up to 4 adults, two on the V-berth and two on the extendable side beds, removable crew bags take care of personal belonging, there is storage under the benches, indoor/outdoor table can be used in the saloon and cockpit, and there is dedicated place for the chemical toilette. For technical storage, there is a large-volume capacity under the cockpit area, accessible from the outside. All interior components function as parts of the boat structure, as well. Furthermore, it's also modular, so one can easily reduce additional weight for racing.

One Design challenges across the continent in a great company of supportive, like-minded sailors.
