First 24

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

The First 24, designed by Sam Manuard is a high-performance thoroughbred with a boldly modern hard-chine hull. Most of the standing rigging is led back to the clutches located on the companionway and two winches combined with jammers making trimming child’s play. The First 24 performs particularly well in light and medium air, progressing moderately and with ease at speeds of 15 knots.

Two hatches open a large sail locker built into the bottom of the cockpit. Fenders can be stored here along with a small thermal or electric engine.

Below deck, the vast open interior of the First 24 has a large forward double berth and single berths on either side of the keel box. An ingenious cushion system means you can unite the two single berths to turn them into a double berth. The table can be carried in a bag and set up inside or outside in the cockpit and can be left on shore to make the boat lighter for racing. A small galley with hob and icebox, chemical toilets and an electric pack combined with solar panels make the yacht fully autonomous.
