Building and history

FIRST 29 type fiberglass sailboat built in 1984 by Beneteau yards, according to Finot designs.
Very high stability, good performance in light airs, a classic interior but innovative for that time are the characteristics of the FIRST 29.
With a great stability, a moderate freeboard, she sails well close to the wind. She is also easy to control downwind.
She is one of the boats that many sailors talk about, and which remain highly rated on the second-hand market. The objectives were stability, easy control, a low heel, characteristics sought for a family cruiser.
