Beneteau First 27 Overview

The First 27 was designed for offshore racing by naval architect Sam Manuard, taking 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 makings of a robust competitive boat. Her hull shape, carbon rig, and deep draught lead keel, combine to 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.
  • LOA 7.99m
  • Beam 2.54m
  • Draft 2.0m
  • Cabins 1
  • Standard Sail Area 49sqm

Key Features

Designed to withstand winds of up to force 8, the First 27 has been certified in the CE B category (Offshore) and ISAF OSR category 3. The imputrescible foam beneath the soles renders her unsinkable.
Cleverly designed, the forward space has a double berth and a technical service area. In addition, the First 27 features a real head positioned between the saloon and the fore cabin
The sail area of the First 27 is generous, with a split rigging and internal lower shrouds making it easy to hoist the genoa. The bowsprit is quite long.
The removable outboard engine can be placed in the bottom locker of the cockpit, clearing the aft completely.
