Beneteau - Figaro 2

Fantastic opportunity to purchase a Beneteau Figaro 2, ready to race. "Rare" has been maintained to a high standard by Carbon yachting, and dry sailed since an extensive refit in 2009. Highly optimized for solo and double handed racing with a removable bowsprit and A Sails, "Rare" can easily be converted back to a Figaro 2 class compliant specification . She has achieved many impressive results including line honours in the Sevenstar Round Britain and Ireland race in the double handed class.
