2010 Beneteau First 45 Description

Imagine in your mind's eye, the latest, fastest - most exciting and responsive sports car on the market. Then transform that awesome engineering into a performance yacht phenomenon. Metamorphosis complete, and Beneteau presents the First 45! Briand Yacht Design approached the 45 project with the intention of gracing this challenge with the winning points that have made the First 50 so successful. Beneteau further dreamed of combining the "winning spirit" of the First 39.7 with the "super-yacht" presence of the First 50. The Briand team delivered! With more revolutionary speed design innovations than ever, the 45's intelligent design includes a wide transom and graduated hard chine on the hull for a maximum waterline length when sailing-predominant speed factors. Easy, thrilling, exhilarating to sail, the First 45 has several draft options for sailing anywhere. She has the same easy access and movement about the ergonomically designed cockpit of her siblings, twin steering wheels for helm precision and high coamings for safety.

After all the adrenaline-induced, saltwater sprayed, action-packed excitement of performance sailing, take a deep breath and behold the beauty of what lies below: high end styling, inviting lighting, spacious comfort and a place to celebrate, relax and rest! Fast, efficient, intelligent, but filled with the thoughtful comforts Beneteau is known for - the First 45 is another exciting addition to our family, just waiting to be part of your sailing victories and adventures!
