The First 27 is designed for the open sea, but she is still suitable for trailers. It enables great freedom of use and many opportunities for discovery. The First 27 is a light & robust racing yacht. She has a big potential and offers speed and thrills for hours of fun aboard! Nevertheless, comfort is ensured and the fun of sailing with a group is guaranteed.
The First 27 was designed for offshore racing by naval architect Sam Manuard, who took inspiration from his own racing experience. Featuring a hard chine as far as the stem, vertical sides, a good beam on the waterline, and twin rudders, she has all the characters of a robust competitive boat. Her hull shape, carbon rig, and deep draught lead keel make here remarkably stable. With her keel taking up 50% of her weight, she is an incredibly powerful yacht. The cockpit is spacious and comfortable and has two-foot chocks over the full length. With a manually operated hydraulic jack to lift the keel, the First 27 is easy to tow.
The innovative interior with ingenious fittings makes the First 27 the perfect boat for multi-day trips for up to four people. The fore cabin has a large double berth while two berths sliding below the cockpit double the length of the saloon seats. The style of the interior is simple yet boldly modern, featuring many clever details that everyone will love: folding doors held by magnets, shelves that double up as bags to embark/disembark everyone’s personal effects. A large table on keel casing leg, and the companionway steps housing storage with a bottom compartment which is the perfect size for a fridge. A refrigerator can also be installed at the lower end.
