The new Beneteau First 14 is a fast, robust sailing yacht. Beneteau yacht designers have focused on design and ergonomics, and this dinghy is an ideal introduction to sailing and the joy of surfing.
The First 14's planing hull strives to achieve the best compromise between speed and stability. The dinghy's double centreboard casing means that she can be sailed solo (centreboard further aft and cat rig) or two-up (centreboard further forward and with a set of three sails).
With a sail area varying between 8.5 and 21.5 m², the First 14 is highly adaptable and suited to all levels of ability. Designed for a wide range of crew sizes and weights, the cockpit has several seat heights; she is particularly comfortable on the longest sides. With a set of removable wheels, every detail on the First 14 aims to simplify sailing in every way.
