  • The New Foiling Bene



    The Figaro Beneteau 3 made it's debut yesterday.

    Not quite sold on the concept.

    Your thoughts?

    "An exciting revelation.
    The Figaro 3 put in its first series of tacks yesterday morning, off Saint Gilles Croix de vie.
    The architects from the VPLP design office were there to make this moment official. The prototype left the harbour under a good blue sky and in light air."

      Docking could become problematic, and raft ups?

        Yeah, that could get ugly quickly!

          Seems like a take off on the DSS foil system, increased stability but potentially with less leeway. Will say it looks like a docking nightmare.

            The galley area must be congested with the blades retracted.

            Might as well put a spoiler on a golf cart.

              I don't think they're aiming at the recreational market, here. I wonder what a new boat will cost...$500,000?
