The Figaro Beneteau 3 is the first production foiling one-design monohull ever to grace the seas. A distillation of technology and innovation, the Figaro Beneteau 3 is the result of a collaboration between Beneteau and Van Peteghem Lauriot-Prévost, the architects of the last two Vendée Globe winners.
Her most visible innovation is her inverted foiling system. These foils have a downward profile contrary to most other sailing foils. They reduce drift and improve the righting moment without increasing movement, thus improving overall performance. Her keel consists of a low-drag, deep straight blade, and her sail plan features a square-top mainsail, genoa, jib, masthead spinnaker and small gennaker – all of which can be sailed single-handed.
