Beneteau Figaro

Beneteau Figaro

The new Beneteau FIGARO 3 yacht is the latest incarnation of the long-standing and innovative Figaro Class.

The Figaro 3 is purpose built in a new custom facility set up by Beneteau to deliver the latest generation of this proven class; a class that has consistently innovated and proven itself in offshore sailing in Europe for over 25 years.

The Figaro circuits are renowned for being difficult. It unites the best offshore racing sailors, who compete in a series of races each year. The best sailors started out on the FB1 and FB2 with around 240 yachts built over the class’s history. The Figaro 3 has been designed to meet the requirements of the new circuit, includes exciting technological advances and is highly anticipated and being watched closely worldwide.

How is the Figaro 3 constructed and setup?

While as reliable as its predecessor, it is vastly different! 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, FB3 successfully delivers performance and reliability.

Mast & Sail Layout

Similar to the Imoca 60s, 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 (=125 yd²) to gain speed in a light breeze) and a small gennaker.

Mainsail area: 39.5 m² (420 ft²) Jib area: 30.5 m² (323 ft²) Large spinnaker area: 105 m² (125 yd²)
