Notes from Farr Yacht Design on the Beneteau First 35

Design #622 First 35

The BENETEAU First 35 (Design 622) is the little sister of the BENETEAU First 40 by Farr Yacht Design launched in 2008. The efficient, modern interior arrangement is based on a fairly standard and well-proven layout with a central saloon, the galley to port, navigation station to starboard, V-berths forward and one double berth stateroom aft to port, single head and shower aft to starboard, and well apportioned locker space. Hull, rig and appendages are configured to realize the best performance versus handicap for racing under IRC. These specific IRC-oriented design features include an undistorted hull shape with powerful ends to quickly maximize sailing length when heeled; a large, non-overlapping headsail rig and a “T” keel for high stability and low drag.  The rig also includes large masthead spinnakers for excellent downwind performance.  READ THE REST
