With the warmer months on the horizon, 36 Degrees Brokers are excited for the arrival of the new First 44 Performance, set to make its New Zealand debut in March 2023.

Light and bright, with clean lines, space is accentuated by quality materials that give the yacht an overall feeling of comfort, while still retaining the simplicity of a cruiser/ racer.

With a starting price of $885,000, the First 44 is exciting to sail, whether used as a fast cruiser, a race boat, a day-sailor, or all three.

The First 44 is a new addition to the First line of cruiser/racers by Beneteau. This 44ft (13.4m) yacht is the link between the recently released First 36 and the First Yacht 53. Performance oriented, with quality equipment and fittings, and multiple rig options, the F44 will impress under sail. The powerful, well balanced hull, combined with a generous sail plan, promises to deliver satisfaction to anyone who loves the sensation of sailing.

The First 44 comes in two versions: the First 44 and First 44 Performance, to satisfying a variety of wants and needs. Both versions promise to be fun, fast and efficient to sail in all conditions.
