Beneteau’s production foiling machine…

Beneteau’s FB3 is the world’s first foiling production boat

The Figaro Beneteau 3 is the first production foiling one-design monohull ever to be built. A distillation of technology and innovation, its design 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 Figaro circuit, including the well-known “Solitaire URGO le Figaro”, is renowned for being difficult. It unites the best French offshore racing sailors, who compete in ten races a year. Beginning in 2019, the fleet will be using the FB3.
