Proudly serving the boating community since 1972





Developed in collaboration with Farr Yacht Design, the First 35 has kept all of the qualities that were the success of its predecessors: seaworthy on all seas, designed for cruising and adaptable for racing, incredibly spacious with her two double cabins and salon equal in size to that of the First 40.

2015 brings a Carbon Edition.

For almost forty years, the performance and elegance of First have regularly enabled their owners to shine on the water and win prestigious regattas.

Only the winner gets the trophy and the First 35 Carbon Edition comes with all the tools to put you in front at your next regatta or epic cruise.

Her carbon fiber rigging by industry leader Hall Spars & Rigging includes an ultralight mast and retractable bowsprit for a leap in performance over the competition. Her unique pivoting wheel is at the center of a flexible and spacious cockpit for optimal crew performance.

And a state-of-the-art electronics pack provides peak situational awareness no matter what the conditions.

Of course, since she’s a Beneteau, comfort for crew and guests is just as important as performance.

The First 35 Carbon Edition will be on display at the Newport and Annapolis boat shows.
