FIRST 40 Carbon Edition 2016
With an outstanding level of equipment for a production cruiser/cruiser, the First 40 has won fame for a unique international record of achievements in IRC, as well as ORC. A reference in the forty foot class, this boat does not compromise on safety and yet its level of comfort makes living on board very pleasant.
Highlighted with subtle decoration and a set of black stripes on a grey hull background, the bottom is as appealing to the eye as it is sailing. The First 40 ‘Carbon Edition’ is delivered ready to race. In this format she has a carbon mast, lead keel, a black composite steering wheel, and a Raymarine electronics pack adapted to regatta racing.
The unusual design of the interior layout of the First 40 offers maximum habitability. The shape and size of the saloon seats allow 1.95 m long berths. The wood table has two fold-down flaps and two possible positions. It can therefore seat six people in its usual setup
and lowers to free space or extend the berths.
Designed to lead the race, the First 40 supplements its choice of performance with solutions
that provide crews with a high level of comfort.
The boat can accommodate a crew of eight, offering two symmetrical aft cabins with double berths (2.00 m by 1.50 m), a master fore cabin (1.90 x 1.40 m) with shower room and two ordinary berths can be made up in the saloon.
The First 40 users and spinnaker retractable carbon bow sprit making the use of an asymmetric spinnaker much simpler.
Both light and strong, the equipment has been chosen for its high level of performance: carbon mast, rod rigging, fibre adjustable backstay, rigid boom vang, tilting composite steering wheel.
