Below deck, the First 36's modern, elegant living space features a traditional three-cabin layout with high-quality wooden details and minimalistic GRP. Innovations like the foldable sink in the bathroom, the standalone fridge island, and the removable cutting board in the galley maximize space and functionality, creating the largest kitchen area in its class.
