The boat was designed to be both a competitve racer, as well as a comfortable cruiser.



Manufacturer Provided Description
The new First 36.7 holds the same delights in store that lovers of the legendary First 35 and First 36 discovered : character, style, performance and all the equipment of a true 35? racer, plus easy live-aboard comfort? pure sensations ; all the Farr Yacht Design touches of the First 40.7, the 40? world-class champion. Both versions share the same interior, effective deck plan, large ergonomic cockpit perfect for genoa trimmers, mainsheet-trim position tucked behind the helm and a deep lead keel. The First 36.7 carries all the hallmarks of a great cruiser-racer.
Bruce Farr has designed numerous successful boats, and this is an excellent example of why he is one of the pre-eminent naval designers. The boat is extremely capable both for cruising as well as racing, and the interior configuration has encompassed the best of both worlds. The forward cabin is a comfortable and large V berth, with lockers for storage. Just aft, to port, is the head and shower. There are thruhulls which are readily accessed under the sink in the head. The main salon has a settee to port and to starboard, and each will comfortably sleep and adult. The navigation station is located to starboard as one comes down the companionway, and aside from the desk there is also a tremendous amount of storage that has been created both under and behind the seat. On each side of the engine, under the companionway steps, is a large double cabin. There is storage both under the berths as well as in various lockers thorughout the cabins. The boat is cooled and heated with a Dometic reverse cycle 15000 BTU unit, and the control pad is centrally located in the salon area. It is difficult to imagine a more spacious and well laid out 3 cabin 37 foot boat!
The L shaped galley is situated to port, as one enters the main cabin down the companionway stairs. There is a Stainless Steel propane 2 burner stove and oven, with a stainless steel bar across for support. Immediately forward is the fredge freezer, which is recessed under the countertop.

The engine is located under the companionway staris, and is easily accessed from the front and the two sides.

Deck and sails
The design of the deck is to allow for easy maveuvering while under way, and for crew to be able to move quickly without too many constraints. The lines are led aft for the cockpit crew to be able to control sheets and halyards easily, and the carbon fiber spinnaker pole is located on a track on the mast. There is a rigid vang, rod rigging, and the running was all replaced in 2011. The two primary winches are Lewmar 48 ST's, and the secondaries are Lewmar 40 ST's. There are four rope clutches on each side for lines. The backstay is adjustable, and the mainsheet traveller is located directly in front of the helmsman. There are braces molded into the deck for stability while heeled, and the transom is open to displace any water quickly and safely. There is a cockpit shower recessed under the helmsman's seat, to port. The instruments are located above the companionway entrance. There is also a telescoping swim ladder located off the transom.
