Overview

NEW BOAT ARRIVING UK IN 2023 - The new Beneteau First 44 is the latest model in a long line of First racer/cruisers that began forty five years ago. From the design boards of renowned Naval Architect, Roberto Biscontini, he has created a lovely sailing yacht that is the natural link between the First 36 and the First 53 combining performance, elegance and comfort in not one but two packages! In her First 44 version, of which the accompanying spec is an example, there is a very convivial cockpit with four winches positioned forward of the helm positions, level access to the large side decks and a sail plan that provides masterful balance between main and fore sails. Benefitting from 350 litre ballast tanks to make short handed sailing as pleasurable and potent as being fully crewed this is a wonderful proposition for those who enjoy sailing at speed. Laid out internally with three cabins, a forward master with en-suite and twin aft cabins plus additional day heads they are separated by a very comfortable saloon providing dining, galley and navigation areas whilst retaining the light and airy feeling synonymous with modern Beneteau Yachts. Also available in a Performance version, built as a highly competitive cruiser/racer.

With a boat due to be in the UK for next summer, now is the perfect time to discuss your requirements with the First 44 positioning itself in an almost unique position by offering both a race orientated and cruising version that no matter which you choose promises to offer exceptional performance. Comprehensive finance and part-exchange options available. Please contact the Dartmouth office for more information.
