The First 24 is a stylish racer and a fast cruiser, an unparalleled compromise in the category of high-performance, transportable, cruising yachts. Ideal for racing with a crew of four, it can accommodate six on a coastal cruise, and eight on day trips.
The First 24, designed by Sam Manuard is a high-performance thoroughbred with a boldly modern hard-chine hull. Most of the standing rigging is led back to the clutches located on the companionway and two winches combined with jammers making trimming child’s play. The First 24 performs particularly well in light and medium air, progressing moderately and with ease at speeds of 15 knots.
Two hatches open a large sail locker built into the bottom of the cockpit. Fenders can be stored here along with a small thermal or electric engine.
