About this Beneteau First Yacht 53


Now taking orders for Summer 2022!

The First Yacht 53 epitomises power and elegance in a mix of classic and modern lines. From her straight slender bow to her 5-metre maximum beam further aft carried to her transom she is a head turning yacht. The cockpit has been ergonomically designed to ensure nothing can obstruct forward movement. With a flush deck, low coach-roof and a sleek modern look, she has all the virtues of a thoroughbred. The First Yacht 53 utilises high-end mast and deck gear to provide a powerful sail plan that can easily be controlled by a shorthanded crew.

The First Yacht 53 is the culmination of over 40 years of development of Beneteau's range of performance cruiser. With sights set on high-performance cruising and more, this “Luxury Performance” sailing yacht was designed for true sailors and demanding owners.

The earliest available build slot is now for early 2023 - so please do contact us.
