The First 18 embodies the joy of sailing in its purest form. As a racer or as a weekend boat, she offers unparalleled performance, stylish good looks, and a connection to the water that is as simple as it is rewarding.



Exterior Design

A large, progressively-chined hull gives you a taste of what is to come. The First 18 offers speed and sensations, whatever your program. Stable and lightweight, with a planning hull and high-performance rigging, the First 18 makes the most of the slightest puff of wind to reach speeds that can equal it!  Stiff in a breeze, she is also perfectly at ease when the wind picks up. Certified for four people aboard, the First 18 handles easily with a crew of two or solo, even under spinnaker. Thanks to her lifting keel, you can beach wherever you want.

Interior Design

The habitable space under the First 18’s coachroof is amazing for a boat this size, making it perfect for coastal cruising. A user-friendly companionway takes you inside where the cabin has a 7.2 ft long double berth and lots of clever stowage. A cockpit tent provides additional sleeping space.

Ready for all kinds of adventures

There’s an air of adventure about the First 18. Combining all the pleasures of dinghy sailing, her versatility appeals as much to expert regatta racers as to novices who dream of coastal rides with family and friends. 


The First 18 is just 18 ft long, with a built-in centreboard and an ultra-light carbon mast. This makes it easy to tow. The boat can be rigged and launched from the beach or a slipway inside an hour, making it as simple to use as a light dinghy.

Deep draught keel

With a deep draught of 4.9 ft and optimised sail areas, the First 18 offers excellent performance, even in light air. The boat is easy to control and very stable under sail.

One Design Regattas

The First 18 is a certified member of the Osiris class, and is officially recognized as a one design by the Fédération Française de Voile (French Sailing Federation), so there will be countless opportunities to take the lead in races.

Life on board

The starboard engine mount clears a passageway to climb aboard from the stern. The sunlounger on the foredeck is an ideal place to relax.
