The First 25 is the first step towards coastal cruising at all speeds, and she is loved for her sleek sporty line.  Combining performance, good habitability and great comfort, she is available in a keel boat version or with a lifting keel.

Exterior design

The First 25 stands out under sail for her slender profile, attractive hull decoration, and generous sail plan. With her unstayed rig, she is equipped with a square-top mainsail, a furling genoa, a 2016 code 0 and an asymmetric spinnaker (on option), making sailing faster and more enjoyable.

Interior design

The First 25 has a level of comfort and habitability that allows cruising. By building the mast prop into the forward bulkhead this creates generous space in the saloon, enhanced by light-coloured teak woodwork. With a double fore cabin, lots of stowage, a washbasin, heads and two berths in the saloon, her capacity is good.

Towards competitive cruising

The First 25 is both safe and fast and she is loved both for her racing temperament and the comfort on board. Her stability and easy manoeuvring make her a really reassuring cruiser, even at a fast pace.


Designed to perform in all weather, the sail plan is optimized with a square-top mainsail, made possible by the absence of stays. This unstayed rig makes movement to the bow much easier. New in 2016: the First 25 is equipped with a code zero.


The 1.85 m lifting keel improves the boat’s performance close-hauled and affords access to any sort of anchorage. It is also available with a fixed keel.


With a double fore cabin closed-off by a bulkhead, a separate marine toilet, galley space, modular saloon table and two berths in the saloon, the First 25 has all the comfort of a real cruising yacht.
