First 18 SE (Seascape Edition) is a modern and fun gateway to keel-boat sailing. A wide, flat, and stable hull, ballasted swinging keel, gennaker snuffer system, furling jib, and minimized deck controls all facilitate an easy-to-handle yet lively sailing experience. Easily dismantled and trailered, she’ll surely fulfill racing ambitions in international one-design classes as well as adventurous sea-camping.

Sailing Experience

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, which ensures 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.

Living Onboard

Despite being small, First 18 SE cabin can still accommodate up to two adults in a sea-camping manner. Front V-berth is decently sized for 5,55 m boat and with smart crew bags for personal belongings and technical 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. A large open cockpit makes her an ideal family sea camping platform and offers direct access to the sea in cruising mode. A fully retractable swinging keel and removable rudder blades will give you access to the shallowest bays you’ve missed so far.
