About this Bénéteau Boats First 20



First 20

is the final iteration of the immensely successful range of 21 footers from Beneteau. Still the stylish and practical weekender cruiser / club racer, the First 20 moved to a backstay-less rig with square topped mainsail and fixed bowsprit for Asymmetrics. Windermere based from new, this is a lightly used and very clean example.

Manufacturer Provided Description

One heck of a number that has continuously evolved these last twenty years and more, with a touch of insolence that has kept it young.  The First 20 has become more aggressive and stylish. Her look is more modern and in her class she offers the best balance between safety, performance and habitability. This classic small boat enjoys playing in the big league in all weather.

The First 20 has a harmonious and high-performing Finot-Conq hull that proves a model of stability.  Thanks to an unstayed mast she features a generous sail plan with a square-top mainsail, 2016 code zero and asymmetric spinnaker on option.  Yachtsmen are keen on 
the twin rudder helm and the chain locker.

Increasingly habitable and comfortable, the First 20’s interior has done away with bulkheads. By replacing the mast prop with a structure built into the deck, this coastal cruiser offers a feeling of interior space second to none. Inside she is bathed in light by the deck hatch, and generously spacious with four berths and many storage spaces. She suits a wide variety of programmes.
