Why First 36 ?


Perfectly optimised for short-handed sailing, the First 36 is a high performance boat thanks to its very high sail area/displacement coefficient and its balanced nautical design.

A standard aluminium mast, a cast iron keel and a 2.25m draught have been chosen to offer the best compromise between performance and ease of use.

Racing layout

In this configuration, the wide and modern cockpit offers the possibility to sail efficiently either for short-handed or fully-crewed sailing.
A higher than average steering wheel position leaves to the helmsman to move forward to the mainsail winch when sailing shorthanded.
The mainsail trimmers work efficiently thanks to the position of the winches.

Cruising Layout

In cruising mode, the additional lockers and their cushions offer increased seating capacity and comfort.
In the cockpit, 6 guests can sit around the table.
The ultra-light bathing platform extends the living space without compromising the boat's performance.

Living onboard

As well as being fast, the First 36 is also simple, comfortable and multi-purpose. Its spacious interior  is comparable to its predecessors and offers 3 double cabins.

The large central fridge is equipped with a removable cutting board. This feature makes the First 36's galley the largest in its class.
In the saloon, the corridor created with the folding table and its removable flaps facilitates safe movement forward.
A large chart table can also be used as an on-board office depending on your needs.

Three cabins with double berths and an innovative head complete the spacious interior.
A minimum of two portholes in each cabin provide ventilation and natural light, while indirect lighting discreetly illuminates the boat at night.
