Manufacturer Provided Description

Designed by Berret - Racoupeau and faithful to the Beneteau tradition of cruiser-racers, the First 33.7 takes its inspiration from the other members of the family: the First 36s7 and the First 42s7, with their powerful hull, efficient deck layout, and sailplan. For racing, a specially designed version of the 33.7 is available, featuring a full-width mainsheet traveler with fine sheet tuning, solent rails on the coachroof, "Tuff Luff" twin groove stay, full spinnaker rigging, cast-iron - lead deep ballast, and a folding propeller. When cruising, the deep anchor well and uncluttered foredeck make for easy mooring, while in the stern, the step built into the transom lets bathers climb back on board easily - and safely. There is a symmetrical saloon (with the saloon table in the boat's axis and straight settees forming sea berths) with a U-shaped galley to port. The First 33.7 can be fitted out in one of two distinct layouts, with either a big double cabin in the stern to starboard and a huge head compartment to port, or two symmetrical double cabins in the stern, with the head compartment moved forward of the saloon. Naturally, both layouts feature a large double cabin forward to accommodate guests or children. Pearwood-stained mahogany finishings are standard throughout the cabin. Plenty of side hatches, the famous forward portholes (hallmark of the First "s" family of boats), and deck hatches provide the natural lighting and ventilation, while a dorade vent in the saloon ensures good ventilation while under way.
