French Yard, Italian Style: New Beneteau First Yacht 53 to Launch Next Summer

In late 2018, Beneteau completed the renewal of the First range, with the launch of four small sport boats. Next summer, the brand is preparing to launch the new first First Yacht 53.

With 24,000 boats produced in nearly 40 years, Beneteau is reinventing the legendary First range with this yacht, matching the desires of new customers who enjoy luxury high-performance yachting.

Beneteau First Yacht 53: Lorenzo Argento for the design

The deck plan and interior of the First Yacht 53 were the object of Lorenzo Argento’s sharp sense of detail. She is graced with the minimalist features of modern yachting: low coachroof, broad open stern, clean cockpit.

Beyond her silhouette, stylishness and speed, a few details offer a good idea of what she holds in store. The First Yacht 53 has a tender garage, carbon rigging, lots of large spaces inside, with a real lounge area, teak mouldings and top quality materials.

The First Yacht 53 will be launched officially at the 2019 Cannes Yachting Festival in September.
