Exterior Design

Although the First 20 has a racing temperament, she makes no concessions when it comes to safety. Built on a high performance Finot-Conq hull, her six foot lifting keel contributes to outstanding stability and improves her performance close-hauled. Yachtsmen are keen on the twin rudder helm and chain locker. 

Interior Design

By replacing the mast prop with a structure built into the deck, this coastal cruiser offers a feeling of interior space and comfort, second to none. From the deck hatch, ample light floods the generous interior with its four berths and numerous storage spaces.

Always ready to sail

Fun and a high-performer, this unanimously acclaimed small cruiser embraces a racing yet assured style. Possessing all the desired qualities, she is loved for her ease of use and affordability. 


Whether for day-sailing or short cruises, the First 20 can adapt to all programs. With her lifting keel and outboard engine, she can be beached and transported on a trailer. 


No need for low shrouds, the unstayed rig clears the deck. Combining simplicity and performance, her sail plan is optimized with a square-top mainsail, furling genoa, 2016 code zero and optional asymmetric spinnaker. 



Although the First 20 has a racing temperament, she makes no concessions when it comes to safety. Nearly six feet, the lifting keel contributes to her stability and improves her performance close-hauled.
