09 Jan 2019 : The “Solitaire du Figaro” solo race on the Figaro 3, the joys of sailing on the Figaro 2
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.
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. The best sailors started out on the FB1 and FB2. The FB3 has been designed to meet
the requirements of this circuit, but may well suit other uses!
The Figaro 2 does not end there ! Dream Racer Boats is delighted to announce the take over in the history of this exceptional yacht with incredible track record.
