The First 27 is a small towable sports cruiser packed with potential. A born leader, she is ideal for racing offshore where she eats up the miles. Yet she is also perfect for comfortable sailing adventures shared with friends.”
The First 27 was designed for offshore racing by naval architect Sam Manuard, taking inspiration from his own racing experience. Featuring a hard chine as far as the stem, vertical sides, a good beam on the waterline and twin rudders, she has all the makings of a robust competitive boat. Her hull shape, carbon rig, and deep draught lead keel, combine to make here remarkably stable. With her keel taking up 50% of her weight, she is an incredibly powerful yacht. The cockpit is spacious and comfortable, and has two foot chocks over the full length. With a manually operated hydraulic jack to lift the keel, the First 27 is easy to tow.
The First 27 has lots of ingenious fittings and she is ideal for a few days cruising with a crew of 4. The fore cabin has a large double berth while two berths sliding below the cockpit double the length of the saloon seats. The style of the interior is simple yet boldly contemporary, featuring many clever details that everyone will love: folding doors held by magnets, shelves that double up as bags to embark/disembark everyone’s personal effects, a large table on keel casing leg, and the companionway steps housing storage with a bottom compartment the perfect size for a fridge .
Just for fun

MODERN & FAST
light vacuum-infused hull, modern design and deep low-centre-of-gravity keel allow us to make these sailboats significantly faster, which defines the boat's character – fast, stable and safe planing sailing experience.
Very high stability, unsinkable hull due to three insubmersability chambers, crash-box, inboard engine and balanced twin rudders for complete control are all resulting in the fact that safety is one of her strongest points.
Carefully thought-out cockpit ergonomy, minimised and simplified deck controls, double winches and perfectly balanced steering system assure easy handling in single-handed, double-handed or fully-crewed setup.
Thanks to practical, modular and smart design features, the interior of this 8m pocket cruiser offers a surprising comfort level with all vital cruising elements, including separated marine toilette.
