The stylish Beneteau First 24 is both fast racer and fun cruiser, unparalleled in the category of high-performance, trailerable cruiser/racer yachts.
As both a smart pocket cruiser and an exciting club racer, she keeps the First promise of modern performance sailing.

A completely retractable keel gives you access to cruising spots you missed so far and the ability to launch and recover your 24 on an ordinary slipway.
Designed by Sam Manuard, the First 24a high-performance thoroughbred with a boldly modern hard-chine hull. The First 24 performs particularly well in light and medium air, easily achieving downwind speeds of 15 knots as the breeze builds.
Below deck, the vast open interior of the First 24 has a large forward double berth and single berths on either side of the keel box. And thanks to an ingenious cushion system, you can combine the two single berths to turn them into a double berth.
The First 24's interior welcomes you with a large open saloon that can easily accommodate up to 4 adults, 2 on the bow V-berth and 2 on smart extendable side berths. It provides all essential amenities you can expect on a modern 7,30 m boat - crew bags for personal belongings, storage under the benches, indoor/outdoor tables and a dedicated place for the chemical toilet in the back of the saloon. For technical storage, there is a big space under the cockpit area, which is accessible from the outside. The sizeable and clean open-cockpit area offers an excellent ratio between comfort and sailing experience. Wide side benches, together with a stern bench, provide a great relaxing place as the cockpit easily fits 4 or 5 sailors.
Combining ease of sailing with ample accomodation, the First 24 is a state of the art trailer-sailer, ready to take you a a fast, fun and safe ride.
