Beneteau First 25
If it has not yet had the honour of celebrating its twentieth anniversary, the First 25.7 still benefits from the changes to the Twenty with fresh rigging! Renamed the First 25 S, it is now equipped with a square-top mainsail, a traveller track on the rear beam, and on option, a North sails kit. As of now, low-shrouds and stays are a thing of the past.
The 25 S, designed by Finot-Conq et Associes, has a really broad transom. I suspect that Finot-Conq has put to use some of its experience in the Mini Transat class in developing this hull. The twin rudders can be much shorter in span than a single rudder and this avoids the need for a retractable rudder. There is the option of a fixed keel drawing 4 feet 9 inches.
