The First 22 is an evolution of the First 20. The model is the result of developments in conjunction with the American Sailing Association as a boat dedicated for sailing schools as well as fleet racing.

The design of the boat allows for a large and extended cockpit. It has simple sail handling and great stability, all while maintaining performance.  The First 22 will withstand the rigors of sailing school and charter life.
