Description of the boat

The First 27 is a small towable sports cruiser packed with potential. A born leader, she is ideal for racing offshore where she eats up the miles. Yet she is also perfect for comfortable sailing adventures shared with friends.”

NAVAL ARCHITECT : Manuard YD

INTERIOR DESIGN : GIGODESIGN

Exterior Design

The First 27 was designed for offshore racing by naval architect Sam Manuard, taking inspiration from his own racing experience. Featuring a hard chine as far as the stem, vertical sides, a good beam on the waterline and twin rudders, she has all the makings of a robust competitive boat. Her hull shape, carbon rig, and deep draught lead keel, combine to make here remarkably stable. With her keel taking up 50% of her weight, she is an incredibly powerful yacht. The cockpit is spacious and comfortable, and has two foot chocks over the full length. With a manually operated hydraulic jack to lift the keel, the First 27 is easy to tow.

Interior Design

The First 27 has lots of ingenious fittings and she is ideal for a few days cruising with a crew of 4. The fore cabin has a large double berth while two berths sliding below the cockpit double the length of the saloon seats. The style of the interior is simple yet boldly contemporary, featuring many clever details that everyone will love: folding doors held by magnets, shelves that double up as bags to embark/disembark everyone’s personal effects, a large table on keel casing leg, and the companionway steps housing storage with a bottom compartment the perfect size for a fridge .

Just for fun

A light robust racing yacht, the First 27 has big potential and offers speed and thrills for hours of fun aboard!

Safe sailing

Designed to withstand winds of up to force 8, the First 27 has been certified in the CE B category (Offshore) and ISAF OSR category 3. The imputrescible foam beneath the soles renders her unsinkable.  

Cruising

Cleverly designed, the forward space has a double berth and a technical service area. In addition, the First 27 features a real head positioned between the saloon and the fore cabin

Rigging

The sail area of the First 27 is generous, with a split rigging and internal lower shrouds making it easy to hoist the genoa. The bowsprit is quite long.

Engines

The removable outboard engine can be placed in the bottom locker of the cockpit, clearing the aft completely.
