FIGARO BENETEAU 3
Number of hulls:
10.9 m (35'09")
The Figaro Beneteau 3 is the first production foiling one-design monohull ever to be designed. A distillation of technology and innovation, it results from a collaboration between group Beneteau’s best experts and the Van Peteghem Lauriot-Prévost (VPLP) office, the architects of
the two last boats to win the Vendée Globe.
The prototype has been tested and the production of the boat has been launched.
It will enter the ISO/World Sailing design category A.
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.
