The First 40 combines the attributes of a sleek and sophisticated racer with all the comforts of a luxurious cruiser. Whether it's competing on the race course, or simply getting to the next harbor a lot faster than usual: the striking performance of her Farr Yacht Design hull and her powerful rig will deliver the "rush" you crave. Take the wheel. Make yourself comfortable on the slatted teak helmsman's position and prepare to unleash the adrenaline. Note the perfect view of the electronic instrumentation on the column. The cumulative effect is astonishing; she is quick, nimble, and responsive.
Knifing through the water, your crew takes in the generous cockpit space - appreciating the easy movement and the ideal angle of sheeting - for winning! Wide, almost level side decks, a highly efficient deck anti-slip design with grab rails immediately at hand - combined with a completely uncluttered foredeck all reflect in the creativity and design experience provided with this Beneteau/Farr collaboration. Stable and well-mannered, yet fast before the wind; the First 40 is surely one of the great secrets of what sailing is all about.
