We’ve all been waiting for this spectacular yacht for some time, and here she comes! The first Asia-sold First Yacht 53 is now on her way to Taiwan, where she is expected to arrive mid-July. She was originally scheduled to arrive in Hong Kong for sea trials with experienced yachtsmen and potential clients but, due to new post pandemic regulations, she will go to Kaohsiung, Taiwan, where she will be based permanently, along with another great Beneteau models including Figaro 3 and the range of Oceanis.
With a Biscontini Yacht Design hull and Lorenzo Argento interiors and superstructure, this First Yacht 53 is an agile combination of cruiser/racer yachts for the owners looking for this kind of sailing, smartly imagined by Beneteau. She is pleasant to sail because of her performance, ease of handling and some of the solutions used in setting up the deck. Everything is easy when you are underway. The wait for this boat has been worth it.
