Beneteau release the new First 35

The hull is by Farr Yacht Design, and the spacious interior is the work of
Nauta Design.

The new 35 features the lines and coachroof characteristic of the First 40. The Farr Yacht Design hull is optimized for IRC racing and comes with the option of two draughts.
The T – section keel gives a deep draught of 2.20 meters, whilst the shallowdraugh
bulb keel requires just 1.80 meters.

A choice of two zero-overlap rigs (with anodised aluminum masts and double
spreaders) are also offered to meet IRC class regulations and make sail handling
easier under race conditions. The Genoa sheet tracks are brought inboard for
improved (closed) angle of attach and more deck space.

The standing rigging is stranded cable as standard; whereas the racing version
comes with rob rigging and carbon fiber backstay.

The ergonomically-designed cockpit offers high levels of safety with bracing
bars, sole mounted mainsheet track and removable transom beam (optinal)
On deck, there are long grab rails either side of the coachroof and passive
ventilation system hatches either side of the mast.

The (optional) windlass is integrated into the anchor well and the bow roller fitting is removable for racing.

The First 35 layout offers two cabins and one heads compartment. The port stern cabin features a large berth with hanging lockers. The heads compartment is to the right of the companionway, and features a shower and 80-litre holding tank as standard. The side hinged companionway provides full and open access to the engine.

The port side galley is L – shaped for effective bracing at sea. Opposite is the
chart/desk with its folding seat. As part of maximizing space and ease of movement, the saloon table is heightadjustable (optional) to provide a dinning surface at its higher level and an extra
berth or sail stowage at its lower level.

Two symmetrical doors provide access to the forward cabin, which features two
hanging lockers and shelves. This offers uninterrupted forwards vision.
The owner's cabin is equipped with a fabric-covered foam mattress.
