FIRST 35 Carbon Edition 2016
Resolutely seaworthy, incredibly spacious, the First 35 Carbon Edition has an unbeatable level of equipment and finish in this class. This 2016 version has a carbon mast, lead keel, composite multi-position tilting steering wheel as standard.
Designed by Farr Yacht Design, the First 35 hull has taut lines accentuated by her particularly elegant hull and roof decoration. The huge cockpit, mainsheet traveller further aft and ‘German System’ trimming make movement easier and safe on board. The lead keel with a long draught promises outstanding performance.
Very-cleverly fitted out, the First 35's interior has two spacious double cabins, a huge saloon and a fully fitted L-shaped galley opposite the chart table. The interior stands out for the elegant contrast between the cerused oak flooring, light-coloured upholstery and light-coloured teak woodwork.
Small crew sensations
Designed to win regattas, the First 35’s principal strength is that it is particularly easy to handle and reassuring for family sailing or with a small crew.
Innovative in more than one way, the tilting steering wheel moves out of the way on tacks to provide perfect visibility of the sail trims, while improving circulation in the cockpit.
The retractable carbon bow sprit makes hoisting the asymmetric spinnaker much simpler.
With the goal of high-performance, the materials chosen for the First 35, such as the carbon mast, rod rigging, fibre adjustable backstay, rigid boom vang, were selected for their lightness and strength.
