String of awards in the USA for the Figaro BENETEAU 3
Awarded Boat of the Year by Sailing World
The Figaro Beneteau 3 has just been awarded best sailboat in the “under 35 feet” category, from the NFNP (NEWPORT for NEW Products) as well as the best sailboat of the NEWPORT boat show, which took place from 12 to 15 September in the state of Rhode Island.
Sea trials off Newport were organized for the press at the same time as the boat show. Journalists had a chance to try out the Figaro Beneteau 3, the First 14, 18 & 24 and the Oceanis 46.1. The outcome of these trials was that Sailing World magazine awarded the Figaro Beneteau 3 with the prestigious title of “Boat of the Year”. These three new cross-Atlantic awards confirm the international success of the foiling monohull, designed by VPLP architects.
The boat continues its tour of the USA and is on show at the Annapolis boat show.
