Manufacturer Provided Description
The First 53f5 is a yacht for ocean-going cruises but is also perfectly at ease amongst the Admiral's Cup fleet. The First 53f5 is capable of surpassing the best performances of today's great racing boats. It has a hull with a minimum wetted surface. Ultrafine "V" entry. Rounded aft sections. A keel inspired by the great maxi yachts: streamlined, composite (of iron and lead), cleanly cutting drag, and lowering the centre of gravity. The First 53f5 awakens with the slightest breeze, and shows her true capabilities in a strong wind. Astonishingly powerful, the First 53f5 equally demonstrates a highly developed sense of conviviality and comfort. Wide teak laid cockpit, sunbathing area with direct access to the sea, a deck plan totally clear of any hindrance to movement - the halyards are led under a false deck cowling; handrails are recessed into the coachroof. The genoa furler with drum is efficiently integrated into the anchor-well. There is the precision of the elliptical rudder. All the great names in yachting equip the First 53f5. The rig features a 21 m Sparcraft mast, white enameled, set on the keel. Two sets of aft swept spreaders without running backstays. Discontinuous rod rigging. Central hydraulic Navtec unit for fast adjustment of the backstay and mainsail outhaul. Ball race bearing action in turning blocks and mainsail and genoa track cars. Double row of Spinlock stoppers. Turning blocks for all halyards to the four Lewmar winches on the coachroof. Two-speed Lewmar Custom ST70 for genoa sheets. Profurl genoa furler. All deck handling effected in seconds and movement greatly eased by the very efficient non-slip surface. The twin leather-sheathed steering wheels leave the cockpit clear and allow the helmsman to be in the best observation position constantly, upwind or downwind. Beautifully moulded companionway steps of mahogany and polished aluminium take you inside. Unique surroundings created by the finest materials, curved forms, intelligently distributed lighting, an inventory both aesthetic and functional. Mahogany, marble and alcantara dominate. Leather sheaths the handrails and contributes elegance to the charm of the "oval saloon" with its twin, rounded settees, and large dining table (adjustable to the heeling angle). Recessed handrails ingeniously incorporate roller blinds. At the chart table, comfortably seated on his swivel chair, the navigator has all he needs within reach and sight. Full navigation instrumentation and an electric switch panel. A number of interior choices are available: mahogany, teak or cherry. Layout options: one forward cabin and two aft cabins, or two forward and two aft. The galley has storage space with cupboards on rails and moulded drawers, 150 litres of refrigerator space, a practical work surface in white marble, and twin stainless steel sinks with hot and cold pressurised water.
