The Beneteau First 18 SE is a modern and fun gateway to keel-boat sailing.
With a wide, flat and stable hull, ballasted swinging keel, gennaker snuffer system; furling jib and minimised deck controls she really enables an easy-to-handle and exciting planing and sailing experience.
Being easily trailerable and dismantled, she will fulfil your racing ambitions as well as having the room for two to sleep on board.

She can be easily sailed by a crew from 1 to 3 thanks to the large and clean cockpit, the furling jib, the gennaker snuffer system,
high boom and a mast without a backstay, allowing for a bigger square-top mainsail.

A retractable keel, removable rudders blades and a light carbon mast make First 18 SE truly trailable and slip-launchable, which will
enable you to discover new places, attend interstate events and meet new sailors.

The First 18 SE is one of the safest in her category. Insumbersibility chambers make her unsinkable, a swinging keel prevents structural
damage in case of grounding and twin rudders give you complete control for safe and fun downwind planing.

The First 18 SE delivers a dinghy-like sailing experience but on a more stable and safer platform, thanks to the wide and
flat hull shape and deep-ballasted swinging keel. Twin rudders ensure complete control even when planing at double digit speeds.
Boat handling and deck controls are simplified as much as possible for the best sailing experience.
The jib is furling, the gennaker is easily operated with a snuffer system and a carbon mast without a backstay supports the
powerful square-top mainsail, ensuring fast sailing even in light wind conditions. Thanks to its ergonomic and
spacious open cockpit, the boat can be easily sailed solo or with 2 or even up to 3 crew members. On challenging
regattas or joyful day sailings, you'll always have a chance to explore, learn and grow with the boat's potential.

Despite being small, the First 18 SE cabin can still accommodate up to two adults in a camping manner. The front
V-berth is decently sized for a 5,55 m boat. There are also smart crew bags for personal belongings and storage under the cockpit spacious enough for all the technical equipment. Traditional comfort might be limited, but she can get you into the most unreachable places you've never discovered before and connect you with the elements like no other boat.
