FIRST 18

“As she whizzes across the waves, the First 18 is nothing but sheer sailing pleasure. Whether you are cruising or racing, this small towable one design has all you need for endless enjoyment of the best sailing sites”

EXTERIOR DESIGN

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.

INTERIOR DESIGN

The habitable space under the First 18’s coachroof is amazing for a boat this size, making it perfect for coastal cruising. A user-friendly companionway takes you inside where the cabin has a 2.20 m long double berth and lots of clever stowage. A cockpit tent provides additional sleeping space.

READY FOR ALL KINDS OF ADVENTURES

There’s an air of adventure about the First 18. Combining all the pleasures of dinghy sailing, her versatility appeals as much to expert regatta racers as it does to novices who dream of coastal raids with family or friends.

TRANSPORTABLE

The First 18 is just 5.5 m long, with a built-in centreboard and an ultra-light carbon mast. This makes it easy to tow. The boat can be rigged and launched from the beach or a slipway inside an hour, making it as simple to use as a light dinghy.
