Don't be deceived by all the comfort, as the new First 30 includes the best innovations developed by Juan K's vast racing experience. What is revolutionary in a production 30 is the set back position of the mast, reflecting the Volvo 70's and Open 60's. To this there are several benefits:
- Large easy to handle genoas without overlap
- Flexibility in the interior layout with centralized weight concentration
- Absence of backstay with the mast controlled by the 25 degree angle of the upper spreaders and the main sheet at the end of the boom with a track on the transom beam
The First 30 is a performance boat with a high level of comfort for cruising due to the layout being conceived in collaboration with the interior design firm Nauta Design.
The forward cabin has a double door for privacy yet still an open feeling. The salon table is forward of the mast post thanks to the aft positioning of the mast. Also worth noting are the bulkhead recesses built into the bottom of the forward cabin lockers and at the front of the salon seating which allow full length providing good settee berths.
An aft cabin and generous head compartment with shower complete the accommodations. Woodwork in light oak tinted Alpi retaining the FIRST rich attributes, such as solid wood moldings on the chart table and galley. On deck the boat is fitted with an anchor well for coastal cruising, a dedicated liferaft locker in the cockpit benches and a large storage locker with area for the stove gas bottle. A 20 HP Yanmar diesel with sail drive and folding propeller is also standard.
