Mad Mariner Photo Show of the New Beneteau First 30

 Envisioned by the acclaimed Juan Kouyoumdjian, who designed the past two winners of the Volvo Ocean Race, Beneteau’s new First 30 is admittedly, well, different. Michel Desjoyeau, a two-time winner of the Vendee Globe, was brought aboard to ensure her looks and comfort were matched by high-performance features such as a setback mast – allowing for large genoas with minimal overlap – and a T-shaped keel for the lowest possible center of gravity and optimization of longitudinal trim.
