Description

New First Yacht 53 for sale. The First Yacht 53 is the latest member of the First range, launched by Beneteau in 1977.

With sights set on high-performance cruising and more, if you are keen on regattas, this “Luxury Performance” sailing yacht was designed for expert sailors and demanding owners. 

With a well-balanced hull and helm for unique sensations, easy-flow deck plan, modern marine interior with a décor of white lacquered bulkheads and moulded wood, the First Yacht 53 gets the renewal of the new generation of First sailing yachts truly underway.

Exterior design

The First Yacht 53 is a happy mix of classic and modern lines. With a straight slender bow providing plenty of forward space, and a 5-metre maximum beam further aft, she immediately stands out for her sturdy seaworthy looks.

The cockpit has been studied in detail to ensure nothing can obstruct forward movement: manoeuvring close-hauled from the twin helm stations with easy access to the side decks, space given over completely to relaxation near the companionway.

With a flush deck, low coachroof and a sleek modern look, she has all the virtues of a thoroughbred. The First Yacht 53 marks a new era with a top quality mast and high-end deck gear and a powerful sail plan that is easily controlled by a shorthanded crew.

Interior design

Moulded wood has made a comeback in the interior of the First Yacht 53. This noble material with polished finishes contrasts with a modern almost minimalist décor of lacquered white bulkheads with a teak sole.

There are lots of fiddles and hand rails, as well as plenty of storage indoors, where three double cabins and two heads make up the accommodation.

The major innovation in the interior has been separating the lounge-cum-relaxation area, with a sofa and coffee table, and the galley space with a dinner table. The result is bright, well-ventilated and it communicates well with the exterior by an easy and intuitive companionway.

Cockpit

The designer Lorenzo Argento focussed on easy-flow and movement between the helm stations, and on winch layout for manoeuvres and easy access to the deck. Behind the lifting transom, which converts to a swim platform, you can easily stow away a 2.40 m (8’) tender in the tender garage.

Relaxing

The First Yacht 53 matches new sailing requirements with a completely new interior housing a large sofa and coffee table and divided into two very distinct and practical spaces: a relaxation area and a meal space.

Sensation and thrills

To achieve maximum thrills at the helm, we focused on balancing weight and balance under sail when we designed the boat. For example, the centre of buoyancy is aligned on the centre of effort.

Boasting a straight bow making her more spacious, as well as a maximum beam further aft, a 2.5 m or 3 m draught (with lead bulb), with twin rudders to control her highly responsive hull perfectly, the First Yacht 53 has the competitive advantage of a hull that clocks up miles quickly.
