FIRST 50:  Birth of an exceptional yacht


first 50The First 50, the new jewel in the crown of Chantiers Beneteau's First range, will be making her first appearances on the world stage at the Cannes International Boat Show and the Southampton Boat Show.


The efficiency of a yacht's design is shown by its ability to harness the streams of air and water and to leave them in its wake in an unaltered state...  and these are the characteristics of the First 50.  This philosophy of yacht designer Philippe Briand neatly summarises the concept that inspired Beneteau in the design and development of this new pure performance yacht the concept behind the mega-yachts.  This combines sophisticated aesthetics with state of the art technologies in the fulfilment of a single idea the pleasure of sailing to utter perfection.


With the First 50, Beneteau sets out to conquer the realm of the Sport Cruisers, those dream yachts of unique elegance with their pure and sleek lines, their subtle aesthetic and their deck plan design.


The sleek hull shape, modern appendices (torpedo keel bulb) and their high aspect ratios, together with a carbon mast impart a unique sensation of power to this 50-foot Sport Cruiser. First 50 pdf
