First 14

A light and fast dinghy designed with the sailor in mind

Building on the legacy of the legendary BENETEAU Wizz, the First 14 reproduces the exhilarating experience of fast planing dinghies. Light, accessible, and easy to handle, the boat is perhaps best described as truly fun, with a quality of build that simplifies maintenance and guarantees worry-free ownership.

Effortless to handle, she is the ideal entry-level dinghy thanks to her many smart design features – a stable hull, a big, clean and ergonomic cockpit, simplified control lines, a furling and self-tacking jib, a gennaker snuffer system, a higher boom and no trapeze.

Solo or Double

With two centerboard slots and a furling jib for on-the-go sail changes, her design allows for a seamless on-water transition from single to double-handed mode without compromising the sailing experience. 


A wide and stable hull offers safety and comfort, and her open space cockpit make movement quick and easy. 


The First 14 is an ideal entry-level dinghy for one or two sailors – a unique gateway to modern sailing that delivers an exciting sailing experience in an easy-to-handle and accessible package. With a furling and self-tacking jib, a wide and stable hull, and a spacious open cockpit free of tangled ropes, she guarantees endless fun on the water. She is designed to be sailed without a trapeze and has a sail area that is easily adjusted depending on the wind strength or crew size without compromising sailing experience, thanks to two centerboard positions. With easy-to-maintain deck equipment, aluminium rig, and dacron sails, she guarantees hassle-free ownership.


Freedom on the water is enhanced by unique removable wheels that will allow you to explore distant shores without the need to return to your starting point. The most hidden, wild and beautiful beaches are now easily accessible like never before.

On land, she is light enough to be transported on a car roof, so you can take her with you anywhere. Thanks to her flat bench design and effortlessly disassembled mast and equipment that can be stored in the hull, she can be easily transported when turned upside-down so you can still fill your trunk up with your family's belongings.
