Beneteau First 36 Overview

You can now experience the thrill of high-performance sailing – not only on the race course, but also on family holidays or day-sailing trips.
Beneteau have made this possible through a carefully placed high-tech and meticulously designed deck and interior ergonomics, which is bringing the most important features of grand prix racing boats into the hands of a club racer or active cruiser.
First 36 is the first mainstream racer/cruiser where onboard comfort doesn’t affect the experience of high performance sailing.

Key Features

Beneteau First 36
Perfectly optimised for short-handed sailing, the First 36 is a high performance boat thanks to its very high sail area/displacement coefficient and its balanced nautical design. A standard aluminium mast, a cast iron keel and a 2.25m draught have been chosen to offer the best compromise between performance and ease of use.
Beneteau First 36
In this configuration, the wide and modern cockpit offers the possibility to sail efficiently either for short-handed or fully-crewed sailing. A higher than average steering wheel position leaves to the helmsman to move forward to the mainsail winch when sailing shorthanded. The mainsail trimmers work efficiently thanks to the position of the winches.
Beneteau First 36
In cruising mode, the additional lockers and their cushions offer increased seating capacity and comfort. In the cockpit, 6 guests can sit around the table. The ultra-light bathing platform extends the living space without compromising the boat's performance.
