2020 Beneteau America Figaro Beneteau 3

Year 2020
Length 35'9 ft

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 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.
