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 First 18 is a certified member of the Osiris class, and is officially recognized as a one design by the Fédération Française de Voile (French Sailing Federation), so there will be countless opportunities take the lead in races.
The starboard engine mount clears a passageway to climb aboard from the stern. As for the sun lounger on the foredeck, it is an ideal place to relax.
