The First 27 is a small towable sports cruiser packed with potential. A born leader, she is ideal for racing offshore where she eats up the miles. Yet she is also perfect for comfortable sailing adventures shared with friends.”
The First 27 was designed for offshore racing by naval architect Sam Manuard, taking inspiration from his own racing experience. Featuring a hard chine as far as the stem, vertical sides, a good beam on the waterline and twin rudders, she has all the makings of a robust competitive boat. Her hull shape, carbon rig, and deep draught lead keel, combine to make here remarkably stable. With her keel taking up 50% of her weight, she is an incredibly powerful yacht. The cockpit is spacious and comfortable, and has two foot chocks over the full length. With a manually operated hydraulic jack to lift the keel, the First 27 is easy to tow.
