First 27 : sportsboat given the Beneteau treatment
It's been over a year and a half that the new range of smaller Firsts has been filing out harbours, finding their new owners and doing what they are meant to be doing – sailing all over the world. But, as a model developed from his sporty sister boat – First 27SE, made for different circumstances, there were and still are some questions on whether it fulfils its promise. Does it still deliver on the speed and responsiveness of a sports boat? Does it bring enough comfort to become a cruiser? And through these both, does it bring more people to do more sailing?
