FIRST EXPERIENCE－HONG KONG ENORMOUS ENTHUSIASM
Initiated by Beneteau Asia-Pacific, the First Experience is a series of sailing events that provide boat owners and sailing enthusiasts with the unique opportunity to truly experience the legendary First models. The First Experience officially commenced on 7th September, 2023 and will take place in five different iconic cities across the region, with Hong Kong being the inaugural destination.
The program in Hong Kong consists of model viewings and sea trials held on two separate days, showcasing the award-winning First 36, organized by our trusted dealer Simpson Marine. Despite record-breaking rainfall, over 30 guests gathered at Hebe Haven Yacht Club to view and explore the highly-regarded First 36 model. The event had a relaxing atmosphere with delicious hot dogs and refreshing cold beer, and participants were enthusiastic about experiencing the capabilities of the First 36. More details about the sea trials will be announced soon. Stay connected for updates.
