2010 Beneteau First 30 JK

Boat Overview

Boat Description

It was no small challenge to update the First 30, which has sold more than 1,000 units since 1977. The First 30 JK, of 2010 vintage, was created by combining the experience of Michel Desjoyeaux and the drawing board of Juan Kouyoumdjian, one of the most prominent designers on the Volvo 70 circuit.

With a very contemporary hull shape and sail plan, the First 30 JK has the enlarged stern that characterises its generation. The two rudders at the ends of the very wide transom, the hard chine just above the waterline and the bright colours all emphasise that this isn’t just a simple restyling but a brand new model…

In terms of rigging, the First 30 JK features a gaff rig, a sturdy backstay and a genoa with a big overlap, a long boom, and a carbon bowsprit and mast (optional). 63m2 of sail area upwind for a weight of 3,750 kg makes it light and sporty!

Underneath, and invisible from the port, there is a fin keel that has been positioned quite far forward. It is made of cast steel and lead, with a “torpedo” bulb that has also been moved far forward for an equally far forward centre of gravity.The construction method is classic for Beneteau, comprised of sandwiched balsa and polyester fibreglass for the decks, and fibreglass and polyester for the hull.

Once on deck, I instantly note that it’s comfortable at the helm (tiller) of this boat, both standing and sitting on the boat’s benches or using their backrests. The tiller extender means you can choose any position. The controls are within easy reach, with a special shout out to the clew track that runs behind the helm. There is a fine, regatta style manoeuvring section and the deck fittings are very generously sized.
The First 30 JK’s cockpit has a very open design and lends itself easily to cruising, leaving the benches for lounging and the aft of the cockpit to manoeuvring.
