It has to be said that Jean-Marie Finot has, once again, done a very good job.

First Class Challenge

First Class Challenge>

The First Class Challenge is a CLUB RACER offering access to top competition for a reasonable budget. A monotype integrated into a Class Figaro Solo. A FAST CRUISER that is easy to manoeuvre and has simple yet practical facilities.



The Figaro Beneteau is a solitary monotype. Dynamic class association, extensive programme, it surfs on the waves of success.  A 9.14m sailing boat created in 1990 with Finot-Berret plans, the Figaro Beneteau has become a monotype symbol,in other words, from the “on equal terms” race. 

Beneteau 25

Beneteau 25>

Good blood doesn’t lie: from the straight and pointed stem to the slender rudder blade, to the tight sail keel and its protruding bulb bow, the Beneteau 25 has all the characteristics of a “thoroughbred”. Faithful to the monotype spirit, the Beneteau 25 combines advanced technology with simple construction. 

First Class 7.5

First Class 7.5>

The First Class 7.5 stemmed from the close collaboration between the Fédération Française de Voile [French Sailing Federation] and Beneteau shipbuilding who knew how to combine their expertise in the field of high-performance sailing boats intended for training young sailors.  With its particularly sound performance, the First Class 7.5, sturdy, transportable and easy to maintain, constitutes an excellent springboard for sailing clubs and up-and-comers.  Designed by Groupe Finot, this modern and dynamic sports monotype was designed for crewed regattas on a level playing field: learning and improvement, high-level match racing or club racing in fleets.  Through its performance and the sensations that it evokes, it is also aimed at those who want to enjoy practising sport sailing out of competition. 



The Figaro II is the fuit of the synergy between the best sailors from the Figaro Bénéteau Class, Chantiers Bénéteau and the designer Marc LOMBARD. Here is "THE" international single handed and crew handed on design.
