It was a "gauntlet" thrown down by Beneteau that Farr Yacht Design couldn't resist. "Let's design a fast, fun, facile competitor!" And racers who have competed with the First 10R Believe the challenge has been met. Critics agree the sleek, open design, powerful sail plan, asymmetrical spinnaker and iron blade/lead bulb combo keel have earned this boat a Beneteau pedigree.

More info

A unique combination of infusion and injection techniques have allowed Farr Yacht Design and Beneteau to optimize their proprietary "one shot" hull molding process for the First 10R, firmly mating hill and structural grid while giving Beneteau engineers precise control over shape and displacement.

Every aspect of this design, from the new hull form and appendage concepts, a high aspect carbon fiber Hall Spars mast to finely engineered weight distribution, contributes to the goal of producing the finest, well-rounded boat available. Non of the character of the luxurious Beneteau First Series has been sacrificed to devise this new racer.

While the perfect weight distribution around the center of gravity optimizes the performance of the First 10R, her fully functional galley, separate head and full sized navigation station round out the "creature comforts" of her accommodations. Luxuries aside, this is a racing boat, designed by racers to win.

To develop a fast, fun, facile competitor was the challenge that Farr Yacht Design and Beneteau shared in the development of this new First 10R. Beneteau called on Bruce Farr to give the First 10R a really revolutionary hull – both stable and powerful, with a large bowsprit forward allowing big spinnakers to be carried to advantage when reaching.

A real winner’s profile.
