Why First 14 SE ?

EASY HANDLING

The First 14 SE is a very easy-to-handle sport dinghy thanks to the ingenious design – a wide, stable hull; a big, clean and ergonomic cockpit: simplified control lines; furling and the self-tacking jib; gennaker snuffer system and no trapeze.

COMMUNITY

The First 14 SE promises pure connection to the wind and sea. But she also opens the doors to the largest recreational sailor community, where you'll challenge yourself in the growing One Design regattas and events.

PERFORMANCE

The First 14 SE is a very fast and stable dinghy thanks to the very light but stiff, wide and flat modern planing hull; piercing bow; sharp chains; high-quality sandwich-vacuum-building technology and a robust carbon rig.

TWO-IN-ONE

The First 14 SE features on-the-go adaptability to single and double-handed crews alike without compromising sailing experience, thanks to two centreboard slots and a furling jib.

Sailing Experience

First 14 SE introduces the world of modern racing skiffs to recreational sailors in an accessible, stable and easy-to-handle sport dinghy. 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. This high-performance, fast and exciting sailing boat will directly connect you with the elements – the sea and wind. But on the other hand, developing One Design Class allows you to become a part of the largest recreational community of like-minded sailors. It enables you to test your skills on the racecourse and enjoy good company ashore.

Mobility 2.0

Freedom on the water is enhanced with 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 as 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 a flat bench design, she can be easily transported and two-part mast and equipment easily fit into the hull, so the car's trunk remains free for your family belongings.

Community
