A Sailboat In Pictures: New Beneteau First Yacht 53 Revealed

Benefiting from the “First” legacy of 40 years at sea, the new Beneteau First Yacht 53 has been revealed at 2019 Cannes Yachting Festival. The First Yacht 53 is a high-end sailing yacht, making her comfortable and easy to move around. Two stars aligned for her creation: Roberto Biscontini of America’s Cup fame for the hull design and Lorenzo Argento for the interior and exterior design.

Biscontini on the hull

Roberto Biscontini’s thirty years of America’s Cup experience has given the First Yacht 53 a balanced hull under sail with extremely promising performance. Over twenty drawings and simulations were used to position the centre of buoyancy accurately, to achieve the desired result.

To achieve maximum thrills at the helm, we focused on balancing weight and balance under sail when we designed the boat. We worked hard to optimize the position of the centre of buoyancy in relation to the centre of effort, guaranteeing a lively yacht under sail, responding quickly to the helm. We asked the best outfitters to provide their top performing products: North Sails for the sails, Harken for the deck gear, Lorima for the mast, and Lemer for the keel. They were all involved on the recent design of the Figaro BENETEAU 3 with foils“, declared Roberto Biscontini.

The deck plan

Deck circulation, from the helm station to the foredeck, has been improved considerably on the First Yacht 53, by Lorenzo Argento, one of the founders of “Modern Yachting”. 

There is no need to step over anything or to obstruct a crew member. Everything flows, with the cockpit divided into two distinct sections: the helm and maneuver, and a relaxation area. There is just one watchword for this First Yacht 53: “intuitive”, stresses Lorenzo Argento, who is a sailor himself.
