Why First 14 ?

EASY HANDLING

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

SOLO or DOUBLE

Adaptable to single- and double-handed crews alike without compromising sailing experience, thanks to two centreboard slots and furling jib for on-the-go sail changes. Ideal for newcomer's introduction to sailing.

LIGHT and FAST

Light, modern, wide and flat planing hull design and wave-piercing bow result in a very stable dinghy, built with high-quality vacuum infusion sandwich technology.

STABLE & SAFE

Modern wide and flat hull shape with strong chains and piercing bow results in an extremely stable and safe dinghy which gives the crew sufficient hiking momentum. That's why she can be easily sailed without a trapeze. 

Sailing experience

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. Furling and self-tacking jib, wide and stable hull, and spacious open cockpit free of tangled ropes guarantee endless fun on the water. She is designed to be sailed without trapeze, and you can easily adjust the sail area depending on the wind strength or crew size without compromising sailing experience, thanks to two centreboard positions. With easy-to-maintain deck equipment, aluminium rig and dacron sails she brings hassle-free ownership.

Mobility 2.0

Freedom on the water is enhanced by unique removable wheels that will allow you to explore distant shores without the need to return to the starting point. Most hidden, wild and beautiful beaches are now easily accessible as never before.
On land, she is light enough to be transported on the car's roof, so you will be able to take her everywhere with you. Thanks to flat bench design, she can be easily transported turned upside-down, and dividable mast and equipment easily fit into the hull, so the car's backpack remains free for your family's belongings.
