Design #496 First 44.7
carbon mast option.
In general the boats will share the same layout aft of the mast with 2 enclosed cabins aft, 2 enclosed heads with showers (cruising version only), full galley with 4 burner stove, double sink and an icebox. There will also be a sit down navigation station and a salon settee with table and seating for 6.
Externally the design is very much in keeping with the sleek and slender look of the current First Series yachts. The cockpit is in the "T" style and will allow ample seating for crew or guests. The aft combings will be recessed in the helm area for comfortable upwind seating and there will be a small but functional swim platform recesses in the transom.
The cruising mast will be a 7/8 style aluminum fractional rig and the yacht will carry a 145% overlapping genoa.
