Manufacturer Provided Description

With the First 45f5, pleasure sailing has made a giant leap forward in aerodynamics, performance, advanced technology, pure intelligence, and beauty of design. From the keel to the masthead, she is born into performance. With advanced keel design, modern rudder, long waterline, fine entry, and minimum wetted surface, her wake is almost imperceptible. Her spar is a fractional Sparcraft mast with double spreaders swept aft to avoid the need for running backstays.

Her standing rigging is rod.

The interior is a luxurious mix of tradition and modern design. Fluid, soft shapes, moulded by the wind and water. Noble, smooth materials. Luminous and rich deep colours. Purity of form. Two curved settees surround the oval shaped salon table.

The warm tones of the teak or mahogany woodwork, leather sheeted handrails, the smoothly curved cabin doors, all add elegance to this spacious area. All furniture is rail-mounted to allow the normally confined space of hanging lockers and stowage spaces to breathe. Privacy is available with the roll up blinds, cleverly hidden in the grabrails. Soft light enters through the band of portlights in the topsides. Natural light from the translucent strip on the cabin top, becomes a ray of light by night.

The galley, with its marble work surface, has been designed for the master chef. There is a vast array of drawers, cupboards, and stowage areas. The 7.8-cubic-foot refrigerator can hold stores for an entire cruise. In the owner's cabin or the guest cabins, the luxury of the appointments, the quality of the materials, the unique atmosphere of beauty and intimacy, make the First 45f5 a true source of pleasure for the cruising sailor and the racer alike. Insulation is optimized by the false deck, actual cored deck and the interior liner. All ports and hatches are mounted on the cabin sides to avoid the greenhouse effect of flat hatches. On deck, all halyards, reefing lines, control lines and even the genoa furling line run aft under a false deck, to a battery of 14 stoppers. Handrails are recessed in the deck, sidedecks are wide and clear.

The transom skirt opens to reveal a wide swim platform. Flush-mounted chainplates are clean and prevent sheets catching. The Harken sheet blocks make sail trimming a pleasure. The Proengin double groove headstay can be fitted with an optional furling drum, which is mounted below deck in the anchor well, alongside the windlass.
