Uniting simplicity and performance in all weather and all latitudes, with increasingly personalized uses, to make dreams all the more accessible – innovating endlessly.
The signature features of the First range have not changed since its conception in 1977. First models have always been designed for sailors who enjoy club racing as much as cruising, bringing the best of both worlds into one single product line. In 2021, BENETEAU is launching the new First 14, 24 and 27.
Drawing power from the same exhilarating hulls as their SE counterparts while offering simpler systems, aluminium masts, more comfortable interiors and cockpits geared towards daysailing and coastal cruising, these boats adapt to the different needs and expectations of a wide variety of users.
HIGH-TECH PERFORMANCE FROM THE CUTTING EDGE OF RACING INTO THE HANDS OF THE RECREATIONAL SAILORS.
First SE - Seascape Edition encourages and empowers sailors to expand their comfort zone by joining competitive one-design racing and adventure sailing. It grows a community of owners linked by shared values and a drive to strengthen their sailing skills. Whether owners are racing against others in one-design classes or are engaging in adventure sailing, the First SE connects them to the elements and helps them experience nature in the most authentic way.
A carbon rig, laminate sails and other technological features give sailors the ultimate sailing experience, performance and control.
Heir to more than 40 years of experience of the First range launched by BENETEAU in 1977, the First Yacht sets the course for high-performance cruising.
The world reference in cruising. With eight models ranging from 31 to 60 feet, the Oceanis is a safe and efficient sailing yacht. With increasingly stable hulls, clear deck plans, simplified manoeuvring, equipment and interiors lending themselves to personalization, the Oceanis range continues to improve the cruising experience. The dream is subtly falling into place.
BENETEAU has created a link to another world with the Oceanis, which stands apart for its space, light and design, coming together in unison to transform life at sea. It has opened the door to new horizons, described by sumptuous spaces and served by noble and luxurious materials.
