March 22, 2013 reviews the New Beneteau First 20

The Beneteau First 20 made her US Debut at the Annapolis Boat Show in 2012. From our point of view, Beneteau’s new First 20 is a breath of fresh air to hit the “entry-level” sailboat market. She was designed by Finot Conq & Associates in France and her bottom shape and some of her attributes come right off the huge round-the-world racing boats the firm has designed. She has twin rudders, a square-top mainsail, and bottom shape that give her both speed and form stability. She is easy to sail and affordable. Isn’t that what the doctor ordered?
