2022 Beneteau America First 14

Building on the legacy of the legendary BENETEAU Wizz, the First 14 reproduces the exhilarating worldof fast planing dinghies. Light, accessible, and easy to handle, the boat is perhaps best described as essentially fun, and the quality of her build simplifies maintenance and guarantees worry-free ownership.

The First 14 is an ideal entry-level dinghy for one or two sailors – a unique gateway to modern sailing that delivers an exciting sailing experience in an easy-to-handle and accessible package. With a furling and self-tacking jib, a wide and stable hull, and a spacious open cockpit free of tangled ropes, she guarantees endless fun on the water. She is designed to be sailed without a trapeze, and you can easily adjust the sail area depending on the wind strength or crew size without compromising sailing experience, thanks to two centerboard positions. With easy-to-maintain deck equipment, aluminium rig, and dacron sails, she guarantees hassle-free ownership.

Freedom on the water is enhanced by unique removable wheels that will allow you to explore distant shores without the need to return to your starting point. The most hidden, wild and beautiful beaches are now easily accessible like never before. On land, she is light enough to be transported on a car roof, so you can take her with you anywhere. Thanks to her flat bench design, she can be easily transported when turned upside-down, and her dividable mast and equipment easily fit inside the hull, so you can still fill your trunk up with your family's belongings.
