Beneteau First Series of Yachts are the industry standard for racer/cruiser sailboats. They are designed to meet the performance needs of demanding racing sailors yet are completely equipped for comfortable cruising. Equipped with tall fractional rigs, high performance keels and premium deck hardware, the First series can be found at the head of the fleet.

Designed by the global leader in racing yachts, Farr Yacht Design, the First 36.7 was inspired by the world wide success of her big sister, the First 40.7, the most successful and prolific performance yacht of her size in the last 20 years. There are close to 400 First 36.7s sailing worldwide. Sleek on the edges and responsive at the helm, the 36.7 incorporates a variety of innovative features at an incredible value. Built in the U.S.A.! IMS World Champion for 2002 & 2003!

Beneteau USA, the American division of the world’s largest sailboat manufacturer, builds hundreds of 32-49 foot production sailboats, as well as the Swift Trawler 42, in Marion, SC and imports sailing yachts up to 57 feet in length from its parent company in France. The boats are sold through a network of over 40 dealers from the north in Alaska to the southern tip of Chile.
