Beneteau First 20

To an avid sailor, there’s nothing like that first sailboat. And twenty years ago, when Beneteau originally introduced the predecessor of the First 20 it became the first love of new sailors around the world, with now over 3,000 units sold to date!

First Love. First Twenty.

To mark so many years of success, the new First 20 Twenty was launched as an ideal entry level sailboat for anyone who has ever dreamed of sailing. She’s a beautiful, high performing, and trailerable! A true mini-yacht with real berths.

The First 20 Twenty racer-cruiser features a square top mainsail, generous cockpit, lifting keel and an easily stepped mast to make sailing more fun for the entire family.

Beneteau’s lively little First 211 trailer-sailer was a huge hit when it was launched in 1998, and it has remained popular through several iterations.  The latest is the First 20, with an all-new rig boasting a square-topped mainsail that should give its already sprightly performance some extra sizzle.
