After developing the Figaro 3, the first production foiling sailing yacht, Beneteau has launched a new innovation, unveiling its concept foiling motor yacht. Created through collaborative work, this unique prototype of a motor foiler is opening up a new age of boating.
It took just nine months for the teams from Groupe Beneteau, working closely with the best partners in France, to conceive, design, develop and build this next-generation flying boat.
DEMS Sarrazin Design, Noval and SEAir brought on board a range of design, technical and mechanical skills, alongside the innovation, naval architecture and product design experts from Groupe Beneteau.
And the result is truly outstanding: groundbreaking sensations on the water with and without the foils, improved boat performance, better comfort on board while foiling, reduced fuel consumption…This concept boat perfectly sums up the Group’s approach to innovation, with a unique and pioneering project.
Built in Vendée, the boat was tested and refined at Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie port at the start of February when it made its first flights.
