First 18

Welcome to a world of incredible sensations. In the last forty years, Beneteau’s legendary sport cruiser has carved out a special place in the hearts of experienced sailors. Made from high tech materials, light and sturdy, and fitted with excellent equipment, she can compete on any stretch of water.
She is a must for competitive sailing.

Key Features

A large progressively chined hull gives you a taste of what is to come. The First 18 offers speed and sensations, whatever your programme. 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.

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 2.20 m long double berth and lots of clever stowage. A cockpit tent provides additional sleeping space.
