The First 18 embodies the joy of sailing in its purest form. As a racer or as a weekend boat, she offers unparalleled performance, stylish good looks, and a connection to the water that is as simple as it is rewarding. The First 18 offers speed and sensations, whatever your program. Stable and lightweight, with a planning hull and high-performance rigging, the First 18 makes the most of the slightest puff of wind to reach speeds that can equal it! Stiff in a breeze, she is also perfectly at ease when the wind picks up. Certified for four people aboard, the First 18 handles easily with a crew of two or solo, even under spinnaker. Thanks to her lifting keel, you can beach wherever you want.
The habitable space under the First 18’s coachroof is amazing for a boat this size, making it perfect for coastal cruising. A user-friendly companionway takes you inside where the cabin has a 7.2 ft long double berth and lots of clever stowage. A cockpit tent provides additional sleeping space.
