First 27 SE is a real high-performance planing sailboat, easily achieving thrilling double-digit speeds and delivering an incomparable sailing experience, resulting from modern design and building technologies.


Planing at double-digit speeds is easier than ever. First 27 promises a thrilling and pure sailing experience. She is sourcing her performance from a modern hull design and light but stiff vacuum-infused hull construction. Hull with very high initial stability and deep lead-bulb keel easily handle carbon rig with large square-top mainsail without a backstay or runners. All the power is nothing if you can't manage it. Well-thought cockpit ergonomy, no runners, balanced twin-rudder steering system all empower the sailors. No matter if you're sailing solo, double-handed or fully crewed, First 27 SE will reward you with an astonishing sailing experience and pure joy under the sails. 



First 27 SE is the only B category trailable 8m boat on the market with a fully functional interior. What might look minimalistic is the extremely weight-sensitive interior, where all components are also functioning as part of the boat structure. She can accommodate up to 6 adults, two in separated bow cabin, and 4 in the saloon. Thanks to innovative magnetic doors, the mid-section of the boat can be converted to the proper marine toilette, front cabin extension or "wet-room" for sail-changes. Interior also offers crew bags for personal belongings, fridge, foldable table and sail-locker. Combined with other practicalities, these make her an ultimate adventure cruiser for sailing connoisseurs. All interior is modular, so one can quickly empty it and reduce weight for racing needs.
