Beneteau First 53
Capitalizing on over 40 years of expertise, the First 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 53 embodies the renaissance of the legendary First name.
EQUIPPED WITH SEANAPPS
The easiest way to keep your boat safe and ready to cruise anytime
The new SEANAPPS app is the ultimate solution to help you indulge your passion for boating. With the touch of your finger, you can easily connect, monitor and order services for your boat – from routine maintenance, to requesting a wash or fuel or having us complete a repair.
The First 53 is a deft execution of style and power, an ocean-racing thoroughbred aptly camouflaged behind a sleek, stylish figure. The gentle reverse sheer and low-slung coachroof make her look fast even when she is immobile. Yet, there is simply no compromise to comfort or safety in her cockpit and deck layout, both of which are free-flowing, cleverly arranged, and desperately elegant. Her performance mast, high-end deck gear, and finely tuned hull deliver unparalleled thrills in any conditions, whether enjoying a doublehanded sunset run or a fully crewed offshore race.
The modern, almost minimalist interior represents a true departure from the norm, offering a completely reimagined living space with a focus on practicality, comfort, and style. To starboard, a dedicated home-style couch is the ideal place for lounging and relaxation, and to port, the extendable dinner table offers up to six seats without permanently taking up room in the salon. Polished, molded woods pleasantly contrast with the lacquered white bulkheads, creating a bright feeling that is also undeniably warm. The highly customizable L-shape galley is user-friendly, both at sea and at anchor, and there is plenty of storage space throughout the boat, which is offered in both a three-cabin two-head or three-cabin three-head configuration. Well-placed hatches and windows ensure excellent ventilation and infuse the interior with an abundance of natural light.
