First 24

With multiple awards and nominations to her name, the First 24 is a smart racer cruiser that builds on the success of the 18 with clever interior additions. Designed by Sam Manuard, this design includes four berths and a large locker compartment for stowage making for care-free cruising as well as day sailing or racing. Designed for adventure, the 24 also features a swing keel that lifts completely, making her readily transportable and easy to launch, and enables mooring in shallow waters.

With chined hull and clean deck layout, the First 24 is designed to cater for a diverse range of crews. Whether you’re wanting to sail single or double handed, or fully crewed, it’s easily managed with the systems in place such including on-deck autopilot. This boat can also be transported by trailer and is easily set up for sailing by two people with an estimated two hours’ preparation time. Spinlock winch feeders and Harken winches are part of the deck equipment which is easy to use and simply set up on the coach roof. 


There’s plenty of space inside considering the First 24’s size. A removable bulkhead option can be added to separate the settees from the V-berth area, and built in travel bags on the side of the boat mean it’s easy to keep items organised. The keel system is operated from inside and simply involves turning the crank handle. Four people are easily accommodated inside with squab extensions to create comfortable side berths.
