First 24SE

A modern high-tech sport cruiser

The First 24 SE is a modern high-tech sport cruiser, capable of delivering thrilling performance in a versatile package that is easy to use and maintain. She is of course trailerable, and her smart mast-raising system allows a single user to launch and go, giving you access to a wide variety of cruising and racing grounds, from international one-design regattas to coastal adventure races. And at the end of the day, she will welcome you with a simple but smart interior, offering all basic cruising amenities for four people. No matter the mode, she is a true sailing sensation.

Ultimate performance & high-tech building technology deliver the promised performance of the Seascape Edition: a very light, modern vacuum-infused vinyl-ester hull, composite-build swinging keel with lead bulb, carbon-fiber rig, and extensive sail area.


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


The First 24 SE is insubmersible thanks to her unsinkable chambers, a swinging keel system which will protect the structure in case of grounding, and twin rudders that always ensure complete control. Expanding your comfort zone has never been safer!


Whether you prefer classical windward-leeward races or exploring new shores through single or double-handed adventures, you'll always enjoy the company of the growing worldwide owners' community.


A light structure and a swinging keel system enable easy road transportation. Handling of the light carbon mast is easy, and her provisional mast crane does not limit you to on-land facilities. She allows a user to simply launch and go.


The First 24 SE is a true pocket rocket, defined by the design team's racing background. An incredible sail area to displacement ratio ensures fast sailing in both strong and light wind conditions. Downwind planing in stronger breezes is a blast and a pure joy because of the stable hull, and the deep, ballasted keel and twin rudders, which give you complete control.  The First 24 SE is enjoyable in lighter conditions too, as she reacts to the slightest wind gusts and can easily match wind-speeds. Spacious, open and carefully thought-out cockpit ergonomics work in solo, double-handed or fully-crewed setups and guarantee easy handling and comfortable sailing, no matter if you're on a relaxed afternoon sail or racing in one-design regattas.


The First 24 SE interior is minimalistic and very weight-sensitive, but in addition to her performance, she still provides all key amenities you can expect on a modern 24ft high-performance racer. The large open-space salon can easily sleep up to 4 adults, two on the V-berth and two on the extendable side beds. Her removable crew bags house personal belongings, and can be stored under the benches. Her indoor/outdoor table can be used in the salon or cockpit, and there is even a dedicated place for a chemical toilet. For technical storage, there is a large-volume capacity under the cockpit area, accessible from the exterior. All interior components function as parts of the boat structure. Furthermore, the First 24 SE is highly modular, so one can easily reduce additional weight for racing. 


Joining the One Design Class gives you access to the largest recreational community of like-minded sailors. It enables you to test your skills on the racecourse and enjoy good company ashore.
