Why First 27 SE ?

SUPER-FAST

First 27 SE is a real high-performance planing sailboat, easily achieving thrilling double-digit speeds and delivering an incomparable sailing experience, resulting from modern design and building technologies.

SAFE

Its superb seaworthiness, which crowned the boat with the B category, results from boat design, cutting-edge building technology and many safety features: three separated insubmersibility chambers, swinging keel system in case of grounding and increased bow volume with crash box.

ONE DESIGN 

The One Design racing calendar comprises of fully crewed windward-leeward races to adventurous long-distance double-handed or solo challenges. Whichever you choose, you can count on the friendly community that will give you a proper challenge

TRAILABLE

Sitting low on the trailer due to hydraulically operated swinging keel, light structure, beam just below the width limit and light carbon mast, she is wholly trailable on different locations, for racing or cruising purposes. 

Sailing Experience

Planing at double-digit speeds is easier than ever. First 27 promises a thrilling and pure sailing experience. She is sourcing her performance from a modern hull design and light but stiff vacuum-infused hull construction. Hull with very high initial stability and deep lead-bulb keel easily handle carbon rig with large square-top mainsail without a backstay or runners. All the power is nothing if you can't manage it. Well-thought cockpit ergonomy, no runners, balanced twin-rudder steering system all empower the sailors. No matter if you're sailing solo, double-handed or fully crewed, First 27 SE will reward you with an astonishing sailing experience and pure joy under the sails. 

Living onboard

First 27 SE is the only B category trailable 8m boat on the market with a fully functional interior. What might look minimalistic is the extremely weight-sensitive interior, where all components are also functioning as part of the boat structure. She can accommodate up to 6 adults, two in separated bow cabin, and 4 in the saloon. Thanks to innovative magnetic doors, the mid-section of the boat can be converted to the proper marine toilette, front cabin extension or "wet-room" for sail-changes. Interior also offers crew bags for personal belongings, fridge, foldable table and sail-locker. Combined with other practicalities, these make her an ultimate adventure cruiser for sailing connoisseurs. All interior is modular, so one can quickly empty it and reduce weight for racing needs.
