Beneteau Figaro Beneteau 3
The Figaro Beneteau 3 is the first production foiling one-design monohull ever to be designed. A distillation of technology and innovation, it is a result of a collaboration between group Beneteau’s best experts and the Van Peteghem Lauriot-Prévost (VPLP) office, the architects of the last two boats to win the Vendée Globe.
The specifications define the FB3 monohull as being as reliable as its predecessor, the FB2. It is equipped with foils, a better performing ballast-free hull, a more slender and deeper keel, a setback mast and a more extensive and larger sail plan.
The prototype has been launched and is currently being tested in St Gilles Croix de Vie, the birthplace of Bénéteau. The Story continues on the water, destination – circuit figaro bénéteau in 2019.
It will enter the ISO/World Sailing design category A.
