For fast cruising enthusiasts, the First 44.7 excels in its easy handling, its sensitivity at the helm and the safety it affords, even when short-handed. Its formidable performance, its standard equipment of the highest quality and its timeless elegance make this 44’ footer unique in the world of cruiser racers.

Wood and upholstery in light colours, spotlights integrated in the deckhead… the accommodation has been designed with a focus on space, ease of movement and comfort.
