First and foremost, the First Yacht 53 meets the precise specifications of being the new, fast and luxurious reference sailing yacht. Two years of development will have been needed to bring excellence to the water and meet the demands of the most demanding owners for bar experience, speed and life on board at anchor.
The fluidity of the movements was a workhorse of the designer Lorenzo Argento between the helm stations, the arrangement of the winches for the maneuvers and the access to the bridge. Behind the removable transom that becomes bathing beach, a garage allows to slide effortlessly an annex of 2.40 m
The interior of the First Yacht 53 breaks new ground with this large sofa and coffee table. To meet the demand for the new way of sailing, there is no longer a large square table, but two distinct spaces that are more practical to use: the relaxation area and the dining area.
For a maximum of bar sensations, the balance under sails and the balance of the weights were the workhorse during the design of the boat. The center of flotation is for example aligned with the center of wing. Straight bow with volume, master bau far back, draft of 2.50 m or 3 m (with lead bulb), double rudders to control perfectly this living hull, the First Yacht 53 has all the assets of a hull that swallows the miles quickly.
