Capitalizing on 40 years of maritime expertise, the First 53 is a proud member of the First range, a series launched by BENETEAU in 1977. This yacht is not just a boat; it's a statement. Designed for those who are passionate about sailing and crave the thrill of the open sea, the First 53 is the embodiment of a "Luxury Performance" sailing yacht.

With a perfect blend of performance and luxury, the First 53 is a testament to BENETEAU's commitment to excellence.

Design and Features

The First 53 boasts of a harmonious blend of classic and modern lines. With its straight slender bow and a 5-metre maximum beam positioned further aft, the yacht exudes a sense of robust seaworthiness. The cockpit is meticulously designed to ensure smooth movement. It is divided into two distinct sections: one for manoeuvring with twin helm stations and easy access to the side decks, and another dedicated entirely for relaxation near the companionway. The yacht's flush deck, low coachroof, and sleek modern aesthetics make it a sight to behold.

Inside, the First 53 welcomes you with moulded wood interiors contrasted against lacquered white bulkheads and a teak sole. The yacht offers multiple cabin layout versions, ensuring that every sailor finds their perfect fit. The interior is divided into two main areas: a relaxation space with a sofa and coffee table, and a dining space with a large table. The master cabin is exceptionally spacious, featuring a 1.60 m wide double island bed, ample storage, and large portholes on either side. The yacht also offers two aft cabins with double berths and separate shower rooms, ensuring privacy and comfort for all on board.


The First 53 is not just about luxury; it's about performance. The yacht's design ensures a balance between weight and balance under sail, making it a joy to helm. With its straight bow, twin rudders, and a draught that can go up to 3.02 meters, the First 53 is built for speed. The yacht also features a connected boat system through the Seanapps mobile application, allowing you to monitor various systems, plan routes, and review sailing statuses right from your smartphone.
