Description

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.
