2023 Beneteau America First 53
Capitalizing on 40 years of expertise, 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, this “Luxury Performance” sailing yacht was designed for sailors who demand speed in absolute comfort. With a well-balanced hull and sensationally responsive helm, free-flowing deck plan, and a truly avant-garde interior, the First Yacht 53 embodies the renaissance of the legendary First name.
The First Yacht 53 is a deft execution of style and power, an ocean-racing thoroughbred aptly camouflaged behind a sleek, stylish figure. The gentle reverse sheer and low-slung coachroof make her look fast even when she is immobile, yet there is simply no compromise to comfort or safety in her cockpit and deck layout, both of which are free-flowing, cleverly arranged, and desperately elegant. Her performance mast, high-end deck gear and finely tuned hull deliver unparalleled thrills in any conditions, whether enjoying a doublehanded sunset run or a fully crewed offshore race.
