Description: Beneteau First 44 Performance
The New Beneteau First 44 is now in Sydney.

Capitalising on 45 years of expertise building the worlds most popular cruiser/racer range, the First 44 embodies a natural link between the First 36 and First 53, equally refining and redefining performance, elegance and comfort - a new Biscontini/Argento creation that truly denies itself nothing. She's a lovely sailing yacht with a remarkable design, offering through her architecture and build quality an experience underway that is simply second to none.

There are plenty of options available to build a new First 44 to your desired sailing plan however in this vessel we've used our extensive experience to come up with a spec that will suit an Australian owner looking for high performance, fast sailing as well as the luxuries that our owners can't look past for ease of use and pleasure on board. Whether cruising or out racing with all your family and friends, at Flagstaff Marine we have sold hundreds of Beneteau First yachts into Australia over the last 25 years and we have distilled that knowledge into the specs for this state of the art performance yacht.

In this stock vessel we have chosen to following options over and above the brilliant Beneteau standard specification:

The performance version with upgraded rigging, 6 Harken Performa winches, upgraded deck hardware, and flush traveller in the cockpit floor.
Black aluminium tapered mast with 2 aft swept spreaders. Dyform rigging.
Symmetrical spinnaker pole track on the mast.
GRP bow sprit with integrated electric anchor windlass with chain counter and helm control.
Anchor and chain to suit plus fenders and mooring lines.
Flush, below deck headsail furler.
Full performance deep lead keel.
200Ah Lithium battery bank for weight reduction and better performance.
Full Garmin offshore package with helm pods sporting 12 inch plotters, pilot with remote control, VHF, AIS receiver,
Electric genoa winches.
Electric lifting swim platform.
Retractable bow thruster.
Fusion stereo with saloon and cockpit speakers.
North Sails 3di Mainsail and furling Genoa
North Sails lazy bag.
North Sails symmetrical spinnaker.
Australian category 7 safety gear and certification.

On this FIRST 44 PERFORMANCE edition deck ergonomics were studied and developed with fully crewed regattas in mind. Equipment and systems are geared towards racing, among which should be mentioned the foam nonskid surfaces that replace the teak on the cockpit sole, six well-placed high spec Harken winches and a conventional mainsail traveller in the cockpit floor. As with all Beneteau yachts the cockpit is also well thought out and easy to move around in or relax in when in cruise mode. The cockpit connects at the same level to the sidewalks from the flat transom area, making moving forward on deck and back into the cockpit a breeze.

The First 44 offers a streamlined interior layout that is modern and luminous, with a blend of white lacquered surfaces, moulded woods and tasteful upholstery. With three cabins and two heads, the interior is replete with quality finishes and materials to create a refined atmosphere. In the saloon, the transverse table seats up to six people and faces the sofa and navigation station; its position in relation to the mast facilitates movement between the galley and the luxury owner's cabin, enhancing the feeling of space.

This new beauty has landed in Sydney, ready for racing and cruising fun.
