We recently shared a somewhat hair-raising video of a Beneteau First 27 (formerly the Seascape 27) setting a new class short-distance speed record. However, the boat is also great for family daysailing and coastal cruising: one of the reasons we picked it as a winner in the 2015 Best Boats contest, back when the boat first came down the ways as the Seascape 27: side to the boat’s personality is clearly evident in a recent clip of a young sailor making knots on a sunny day. Wish we were doing that now!
