Beneteau First 20 Overview

With a shorter mast but more sail area due to the square-topped mainsail and larger jib, the First 20 out performs its previous versions. Perfect for day cruising or a first taste of coastal sailing, these contemporary Finot-Conq designs have moved with the times and have a much bolder, sharper look. Easily transportable by road, once on the water, she handles well and is very easy to sail. The First 20 has a harder, sleeker look and has gained modernity. Decked out in its new finery, the First 20 will definitely continue to play in the big league for many years to come.
