In late 2018, Beneteau renewed the First range with the launch of four small sports boats. Now the brand is preparing to launch the first First Yacht 53, a testament to First’s 40 yearlong legacy, the all-new First 53 is as much luxury as it is high-performance.

Robert Biscontini of America’s Cup fame is responsible for the hull and Lorenzo Argento for the interior and exterior design. She comes with a low cabin top, straight sheer, plum bow, long bow sprit and a broad and powerful transom. The optional carbon mast and full racing package is sure to appease sailing purists.

Monte Carlo 52

Set to replace the Monte Carlo 5, this eagerly anticipated MC52 is a new generation of “Smart Luxury” high-end cruiser, combining the best of French boat building with the elegance of Italian Design.

This range has been developed to bridge the gap between Beneteau’s everyday cruisers and the higher end Monte Carlo Mega-Yachts. The result is a stunning fusion of high-performance design with a contemporary luxury finish. Her value for money far outstrips similar luxury cruisers on the market making her a great option for those seeking affordable yet luxury on water lifestyles.
