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.
A hybrid of innovation and cutting-edge technology, Beneteau has created the first ever production made hydrofoil yacht. With a user-friendly design, innovative foiling technology and supreme lightness, the Figaro 3 has ensured that entry-level racing yachts will be revolutionised forever.
Turning heads left right and centre, the omission of ballast tanks in favour of inward-facing foils have helped reduce the overall weight of the Figaro 3 by 100kg. Spreading out like wings just below deck level (instead of near the waterline), the foils are retractable and incredibly sturdy.
For the judges, the Figaro 3's innovative foils defined themselves from a functional point of view - providing lift and reducing weighted surface contact without foiling or flying. This creates drag reduction while improving the yacht's overall righting movement.
Creating a new standard in sailing, the Figaro 3 can sail 15% faster than its predecessor. The Figaro 3 is available to the Australian market and is the new benchmark in high performance yachting which does not require large crews or marina berths. The Figaro 3 is a new and exciting class that redefines offshore racing for every sailor.
