Heir to more than 40 years of experience of the First range launched by Bénéteau in 1977, the First 53 sets the course for an effective cruise.
It is the first “Luxury Performance” unit designed for demanding shipowners and experts who know about sailing. Fairing and balance in the wheel for unique sensations, fluid roof plan, marine and modern interior on a background of white lacquered bulkheads and molded wood: with the First 53, the new First generation is underway!
A fortunate combination of both classic and modern lines marked by a fine straight bow, but with volume to bow, and a very delayed half sleeve of 5 m, the First 53 immediately shows a vigorous character of a sailor sailboat. The bathtub has been particularly studied so that nothing hinders the circulation to the bow: maneuvers near the double government post, with easy access to the avant-tails, space entirely conditioned to rest near the descent. The little-prominent camera, confers a classy style, the flush cover, a modern look. With the powerful but perfectly dominable sail plan with a reduced crew, a mast and a high-end sail, the First 53 marks a new era.
It is the great return of molded wood, a noble material with repuded finishes, on a background of lacquered bulkheads and teak floor for the interior space of the First 53 that does not look too extreme in its modernity. Gifts and handrails, complete stowages make up the interior equipped with three double cabins and two toilets. The greatest innovation of this interior lies in the living room/rest corner, equipped with a sofa with a low table, separated from the kitchen space equipped with a dining table. The set is bright, airy and communicates easily with the outside for an easy and intuitive descent.
