Beneteau First 53 Overview

The model, which was expected for over 10 years, First Yacht 53 made its debut in Cannes in September 2019.

Exterior and interior design...

The design of the flagship of the First line is entrusted to Italian with 20 years of experience in the «America»'s Cup, Roberto Biscontini. The deck and interior was designed by Lorenzo Argento. More than two years of work culminated in the creation of a boat that combined speed, comfort and elegance. Externally the hull looks flawless, but in the interior there is a conflict of concepts. The interior seems to be overloaded: a large galley narrows down the lounge and the right sofa has a nightstand - tight for a 17-meter yacht.

Amenities on board

The creators thought it was not necessary to place a large crew on a cruising and racing yacht. There are three cabins in the standard configuration with the possibility to add a bow for the captain. In the master suite there is a separate shower and bathroom in the bow, one or two bathrooms can be ordered for the guest cabins. The open and spacious cockpit can become a solarium and dining area or remain as open working space for the crew. After the models are overloaded with tables-sofas, such a spacious space looks even attractive.

Features .

The 40-year history of the Beneteau First line is rich with glorious pages written by Bruce Farr, Briand Design and Juan K. The 53rd model opens a new section, as it does not look like its predecessors. Born after testing 25 hulls, the new model will delight racers and cruisers alike. Optional carbon fiber mast (one meter above standard) and 3-meter draft. And travelers can add a table to the cockpit and other amenities.

Swimming area

Fuel volumes (400l) for 110 hp engine and water (720l) are similar to those of the «big four». But the First Yacht 53 surpasses them in weight (only 15900 kg) and sailing - respectively, the horizons are expanding.
