About the First

For almost forty years, the performance and elegance of Firsts have regularly enabled their owners to shine on the water and win prestigious regattas.


2015 brought a Performance Edition: despite ground-breaking performance levels, the comfort and the quality of the finishings in these cruiserracer boats remain the same, guaranteeing perfectly serene pleasure cruising. ​

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.
