2020 Beneteau First 53

Riverside, New Jersey

Beneteau First Yacht 53

Capitalizing on 40 years of expertise, the Beneteau 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!

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 16 foot 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: maneuvering 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.
