Modern & FAST
A light vacuum-infused hull, a modern design and a deep low-center-of-gravity keel make the First 27 significantly faster, delivering stable and safe planing sailing to families, couples, and solo sailors alike.
Very high stability due to an unsinkable hull combined with three unsinkable chambers, a crash-box, an inboard engine, and balanced twin rudders for complete control make safety one of her strongest points.
Thanks to practical, modular and smart design features, the interior of this 26-foot pocket cruiser offers a surprising level of comfort with all vital cruising elements, including a separated marine toilet.
The main promise and differentiation of the First 27 is her performance and unique sailing experience. Again and again, she will surprise you by getting to plane with as little as 12k of wind. A stable hull sources her stability from the wide and flat hull on the waterline and the lead T-bulb keel. Increased bow volume, accompanied with a balanced twin-rudder steering system, keeps you in complete control, whether you are sailing upwind or safely planing downwind. Easy boat handling comes from carefully thought-out boat design and cockpit ergonomics, whether sailing solo, double-handed or fully crewed. Planing sensation and excitement will become your afternoon sailing routine on the First 27.
While being as fast as most racers, she also offers a surprising level of comfort. The clean and minimalistic light-weight interior offers all main amenities for onboard living. She is designed to sleep up to 6 adults, 2 in the bow cabin and up to 4 in a very bright open-space salon, and is also equipped with a removable table and fridge. In the midsection, you'll find a galley with a gas burner and a sink with fresh water. Thanks to inventive, foldable magnetic doors, the midsection can be converted into a proper marine toilet with a black water tank or used as a front cabin extension. A big and open cockpit welcomes you with comfortable benches, a removable indoor/outdoor table and a bathing ladder with a shower on the stern.

A smart pocket cruiser, a joyful day-sailor or a solid club racer – whichever way you choose to use your First 24, she'll be equally ready, with sleeping accommodations for up to four wrapped in an ultramodern performance hull. A completely retractable keel gives you unfettered access to the shallowest cruising grounds and the possibility of quickly launching and retrieving the boat from any ordinary ramp. Her light and stable hull, alu rig, classic backstay and dacron sails make her the ideal holiday cruiser, within operational reach of even the most inexperienced sailors.
Building on the legacy of the legendary BENETEAU Wizz, the First 14 reproduces the exhilarating world of fast and planing dinghies. Light, accessible, and easy to handle, the boat is perhaps best described as essentially fun, and the quality of her build simplifies maintenance and guarantees worry-free ownership.
