From expanding your comfort zone with short handed racing to taking your family on adventure holidays, the First 24 SE - Seascape Edition covers it all.
She is a modern high-tech sport cruiser, delivering thrilling performance and an exciting sailing experience. Her carbon rig not only reduces the weight aloft but also removes the need for a backstay, simplifying manoeuvres and allowing the boat to carry a sizeable square-top mainsail. This results in a combination of very high sail area/displacement ratio allowing you to have fun in the lightest wind.
She is trailerable, and equipped with a clever system to raise the mast single-handed for ease of launching.
Post racing, The First SE welcomes with weight conscious yet smart interior, offering cruising amenities for up to four.
The First 24 SE is a true pocket-rocket, defined by the racing background of the design team. Incredible sail area to displacement ratio ensures fast sailing in strong and light wind conditions. Downwind planing in the stronger breezes is a real blast with the stable hull, deep, ballasted keel and twin rudders giving you complete control. You'll enjoy sailing in lighter conditions, too, as she reacts to the slightest gust and easily reaches wind-speed.
Spacious, open and carefully considered cockpit ergonomics work in solo, double-handed or fully-crewed setup and guarantee easy handling and comfortable sailing, no matter if you're on relaxed afternoon sailing or racing in serious regattas.
The interior is minimalistic and very weight-sensitive, but despite its performance, the First 24 SE still provides all the key amenities you would expect on a modern 7.30 m high-performance racer. The big open-space saloon can easily sleep up to 4 adults, two on the V-berth and two on the extendable side beds, removable crew bags take care of personal belonging, there is storage under the benches, indoor/outdoor table can be used in the saloon and cockpit, and there is dedicated place for the chemical toilette. For technical storage, there is a large-volume capacity under the cockpit area, accessible from the outside. All interior components function as parts of the boat structure, as well. Furthermore, they are also modular, so one can easily reduce additional weight for racing.
