Figaro Beneteau 3. First Production Foiling One-design Monohull

The Figaro Beneteau 3 is the first production foiling one-design monohull ever to be designed, with the first one on the water now undergoing sea trials.

It is a distillation of technology and innovation, and 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.

Here are some early pics of her on the water.
