The annual Dusseldorf Boat Show, held from 19 January – 27 January 2019, saw the much-anticipated unveiling of Beneteau’s First Yacht 53. Having completed the renewal of the FIRST range, with the launch of four small sport boats, Beneteau announced the launch of the first First Yacht: 53 feet of sheer audacity and performance. This new boat was designed by Roberto Biscontini and Lorenzo Argento who both have extensive experience designing custom racing boats and America’s Cup boats.
The Beneteau First Yacht 53 has the sleek lines of a true thoroughbred, with a low cabin top, straight sheer, plumb bow, long bowsprit and broad, powerful transom. It comes with a carbon rig and can be set up with a full racing package that includes an iron-lead deep keel. The working sail area of the standard boat is a whopping 1,800 square feet.
The inside of this beautiful boat is open and simple and looks very comfortable for a racing crew or a family out cruising. The whole package truly expresses Beneteau’s new branding slogan: “Beneteau, the Avant-Garde in Boating.”
The Beneteau First Yacht 53 will be making her official debut at the 2019 Cannes Yachting Festival in September. Contact us at [email protected] for further information on this exciting new Super Sailor, or any other yacht from Benetaeu’s wide Sail and Power Yacht range.
