Featuring a hard chine as far as the stem, vertical sides, a good beam on the waterline and twin rudders, she has all the makings of a robustcompetitive boat.
Her hull shape, carbon rig, and deep draught lead keel, combine to make here remarkably stable.
With her keel taking up 50% of her weight, she is an incredibly powerful yacht.
The First 24 is very easy to handle, with similar sensations to a dinghy at the helm, and she sails a good speeds in all points of sailing. Competitive but compliant, she performs well in regattas while remaining safe and comfortable for coastal family cruising.
