42 years of Beneteau’s legendary First range

Beneteau’s First range is celebrating 42 spectacular years of smooth sailing!
In 1977, the now iconic First range was launched by visionary, Francois Chalain with the birth of the First 30. Now in 2019, over 24,000 Firsts have been built, including 70 different models and countless victories in international regattas.

From the very beginning, the range has found both success and popularity via classic French design, high performance and comfort. In fact, the First range has given their owners more podium wins in races around the world than any other production cruiser-racer.
