Fun to sail solo or two-handed, the First 14 is a simple, robust sailing yacht. With an emphasis on design and ergonomics, this dinghy is an ideal introduction to sailing and the joy of surfing.

Designed by Sam Manuard, the First 14’s planing hull strives to achieve the best compromise between speed and stability. The dinghy’s double center-board casing means that she can be sailed solo (centerboard further aft and cat rig) or two-up (centerboard further forward and with a set of three sails). With a sail area varying between 8.5 and 21.5 m², the First 14 is highly adaptable and suited to all levels of ability. Designed for a wide range of crew sizes and weights, the cockpit has several seat heights: she is particularly comfortable on the longest sides. With a set of removable wheels, every detail on the First 14 aims to simplify sailing in every way.
