A New Unique Sailing Experience: Aboard the BENETEAU First Yacht 53

A First in every detail, the First Yacht 53 meets a detailed set of specifications, the goal of which is to make it a new gold standard in fast luxurious cruising. She took two years to develop and brings excellence closer to water level, meeting the requirements of highly demanding owners in terms of thrills at the helm, speed and life on board at anchor.

To achieve maximum thrills at the helm, we focused on balancing weight and balance under sail when we designed the boat. For example, the center of buoyancy is aligned on the center of effort. Boasting a straight bow making her more spacious, as well as a maximum beam further aft, a 8 ft or 9.8 ft draft (with lead bulb), with twin rudders to control her highly responsive hull perfectly, the First Yacht 53 has the competitive advantage of a hull that clocks up miles quickly.
