To increase the First Twenty‘s speed and performance all the more, this year, she has been equipped with a rigging that will perpetuate her appeal, with a square-top mainsail and genoa whose area is greater, and a self-supporting mast without a stay.Thanks to this new rigging, which frees the lower shrouds, access to the fore is no longer hindered, making circulation on deck much easier. This is particularly appreciable on a boat of this size.To adhere to the trend that favours asymmetric sails, the First Twenty standard is equipped with a polyester bow sprit.

The First Twenty has a harder sleeker look and has gained modernity.Decked out in its new finery, the First 21.7 will probably continue to play in the big league for many years to come!
