Brief Summary

Beneteau and the American Sailing Association (ASA) have collaborated in creating the First 22, a fiberglass sailboat built specifically as a one-design sail training vessel. Its cockpit is extra large to accommodate 4 adult students and an instructor -- all sitting on one side of the cockpit. She has twin rudders, a swing keel and draws just 2'4" (.71 m) with keel up. Most important she is easy to sail. The First 22 makes a perfect entry-level sailboat and is available to all, not just sailing schools.
