Beneteau First Yacht 53

Capitalizing on 40 years of expertise, the First Yacht 53 is the latest member of the First range, launched by BENETEAU in 1977. With sights set on high-performance cruising and more, this “Luxury Performance” sailing yacht was designed for sailors who demand speed in absolute comfort. With a well-balanced hull and sensationally responsive helm, free-flowing deck plan, and a truly avant-garde interior, the First Yacht 53 embodies the renaissance of the legendary First name.


The designer Lorenzo Argento focused on free-flowing movement between the helm stations, easy access to the foredeck, and judicious sheet and winch positioning. Behind the lifting transom, which converts to a swim platform, you can easily stow away a 8 ft tender in the tender garage.


The First Yacht 53 matches benchmark sailing performance with a completely new interior housing a large sofa with coffee table and a convertible dinner table, creating two distinct living areas that are articulated around the moments of the day.


To achieve maximum exhilaration at the helm, we focused on creating a perfectly balanced hull. The center of buoyancy is aligned on the center of effort. With a  maximum beam carried further aft, three keel configurations and twin rudders, as well as her powerful sail plan, she is as responsive as a dinghy and accelerates in an instant.
