Isn't a matter of strength & build. It a matter of speed & comfort.

The hull, deck layout and cockpit design of the First series supports racing with below deck comforts at a minimum. The Oceanis series is designed for cruisers that may occasionally race.

Hard to find a good place to mount the Bimini, Dodger & BBQ grill on a First Series.
