Figaro 3

Figaro 3

The award winning Figaro 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 Figaro 3 is optimised for performance. In addition to those stunning foils, the ballast-free hull and deep straight blade hull minimise drag. The setback mast provides balance under sail and allows for a larger sail plan.

The Foils

The Foils

The Figaro 3 foils have an inward-facing profile. They create drift reduction and improve the boat’s righting moment, without increasing the movement, which improves the boat’s performance.

The foils are retractable for easy docking. But while you’re sailing, they reduce drag and make the Figaro 3 15% faster than previous models.

Mast and sail layout

Mast and sail layout

The mast is set back, providing balance under sail. This allows the use of high performance sails and the addition of a bowsprit. Solo sailors will sail with a square-top mainsail, a genoa and a jib, but also a masthead spinnaker (105 m² to gain speed in a light breeze) and a small gennaker.

  • Mainsail area: 39.5 m²
  • Jib area: 30.5 m²
  • Large spinnaker area: 105 m²
