Figaro 3 was supposed to be an esoteric boat that might appeal to a very particular buyer, but to everyone's surprise, they are being scooped up at a far greater clip than anyone thought. The truth is this boat is just addictive to sail. Everyone comments on the foils, with most people thinking they are meant to make the boat elevate, but they are essentially replacing ballast tanks, so they are more for righting moment than lift, and they definitely work. The Figaro 3 is an athlete-light, nimble and smoking fast!
