First 36.7
Deep draft

The First 36.7 is in line with the First 40.7 a real cruiser-racer designed for IRC and IMS. She can make her mark in regatta or cruise with the whole family for that she uses modularity: cockpit lockers are removable as for the First 40.7, and the saloon table can be removed leaving only the structure used as handrail.

The First 36.7 is fast in all conditions but requires weight to really perform. The helmsman enjoys a very direct helm wheel offering responsiveness and sensitivity. Thanks to her qualities and her wide distribution the First 36.7 can race as one-design and many fleets exist in particular in Scandinavia and in North America.
