The First 20


With over 2300 boats sailing worldwide since the introduction of the First 210 and First 21.7s, the success story continues with the First 20 !


One heck of a number that has continuously evolved these last twenty years and more, with a touch of insolence that has kept it young.  The First 20 has become more aggressive and stylish. Her look is more modern and in her class she offers the best balance between safety, performance and habitability. This classic small boat enjoys playing in the big league in all weather.


The First 20 has a harmonious and high-performing Finot-Conq hull that proves a model of stability. Thanks to an unstayed mast she features a generous sail plan with a square-top mainsail, 2016 code zero and asymmetric spinnaker on option. Yachtsmen are keen on the twin rudder helm and the chain locker.

To increase the First Twenty's speed and performance all the more, she has been equipped with a rigging that will perpetuate her appeal, with a square-top mainsail and genoa whose area is greater, and a self-supporting mast without a stay.Thanks to this new rigging, which frees the lower shrouds, access to the fore is no longer hindered, making circulation on deck much easier. This is particularly appreciable on a boat of this size.To adhere to the trend that favours asymmetric sails, the First Twenty standard is equipped with a polyester bow sprit. .

A completely new interior with more living space, more stowage and light wood finishes… and a new deck layout, with even more comfortable coamings !


Increasingly habitable and comfortable, the interior has done away with bulkheads. By replacing the mast prop with a structure built into the deck, this coastal cruiser offers a feeling of interior space second to none. Inside she is bathed in light by the deck hatch, and generously spacious with four berths and many storage spaces. She suits a wide variety of programmes.


More than ever before, the smallest of the FIRST family is a big cruising yacht with plenty of style ! Fun and a high-performer, this 6.50 m cruiser embraces a racing yet reassuring style. This unanimously acclaimed sailing yacht is small in size but has terrific qualities and she is loved because she is affordable and very easy to use.
