Builder’s comment… “A smart innovation on many levels, the rocking wheel on the First 35 frees up space between the stern of the boat and the cockpit without weighing the boat down with a second helm station.”

Her designer is Farr Yacht Design with the Interior design by Nauta Design. She has an LOA of 35’ 7” and a light displacement of about 6 tons. Stop by this boat and study her multi-position tilting wheel pedestal. It is a new and good feature for a boat cockpit of this LOA length boat.. It has a helm person controlled “swing” from port to centerline to starboard. This Beaneteau new idea is very practical. Plus the wheel has a good feel to it.

Is she more racer than cruiser? In this Carbon Edition Seabuddy thinks the answer is yes. But she is still a comfortable family cruiser.

Under sail, this wheel design lets the helmsperson to be on the weather rail with the wheel in easy reach. And then shift the same wheel for a tack. See this sail boat at the Annapolis Sail Boat Show.
