The Figaro Beneteau 3, or FB3, is the world’s first production foiling one-design monohull. Its predecessor, the Figaro 2, launched the careers of many well-known sailors, but that boat was not unique in its design. The Figaro 3, with its new, inward-facing foils is radical, and this 32-foot sailboat should be a game-changer when the first production boats start competing in the Solitaire URGO le Figaro single-handed race and other Figaro circuit races. beneteau.com/us/figaro-beneteau-3
