First 14

There’s a First time for everything! And this neat 14’ skiff offers an ideal introduction to sailing. Designed for a wide range of crew sizes and weights and suited to all levels of ability, the First 14 is simple yet robust, and fun to sail solo or double-handed. With a planing hull and double centre-board casing, this pocket rocket can sail with varying sail configurations and is the ultimate compromise between speed and stability.

Versatile

The sail configuration can be reduced to suit experienced sailors or novices and children alike. With the jib furled, smaller mainsail, and centreboard moved aft, this gives a smaller sail plan for easily controlled sailing. You’ve got two options when choosing a First 14; where the ‘standard’ version includes a mainsail only which is suited to single-handed sailing or beginners, and the double-handed version includes bowsprit and set of three sails. The standard version can be upgraded at any time when you’re ready for the next challenge! 

Light but Robust

Whether you want to transport it on the roof of your car or on a trailer behind, the First 14 weighs in at just 67kg so is a breeze to carry around. The vacuum-infusion sandwich construction means it can maintain optimum weight while still being strong and durable.
