Beneteau First 35 Review from our Friend Don Finkle of RCR Yachts

By Don Finkle, RCR Yachts:
We started out with an inspection of the F35, which was on the hard, rig up. There aren’t any sails for this hull yet so we couldn’t sail it, but it will be on display at the Annapolis show in a few weeks. Having owned First 36.7s myself for nine years now, and loving the boat, I was most curious as to how this replacement model would compare. Both after all were designed by Farr. Well, in many respects the First 35 blows the 36.7 away, which I have to say with mixed emotions as the 36.7 is still one of the best in class ever, all considered. I am not about to give up the one design competition we have currently with the 36.7, but if it were not for that I’d change to the F35 in a heartbeat. Being a much newer model, one would expect some improvements, but overall the First 35 appears to be a significant upgrade in a number of areas.  READ REVIEW
