At the moment it is still in the pipeline, but we expect to see it in the water very soon. The new Futuna 50, designed by the expert oceanic hands of Marc Lombard, is the smallest boat from the French shipyard famous for the aluminum construction of its one-off hulls.
Looking at the lines of the hull (thin entry lines, maximum waterline area, reduced maximum beam at heeled boat) it seems to inherit from its big sisters a predilection for carrying gaits, in which it will be able to be stable and fast.
Below deck, the first feature one notices is the raised salon that gives a 360-degree view of the sea and is accompanied by modern, elegant lines. The maximum beam towards the stern combined with the double rudder blade ensures good control of the boat at the helm for maximum pleasure while sailing. The 9/10 fractional limb is available with carbon boom and mast.

Well thought out internally as well, with a large and secure cockpit, ample storage space, and an aluminum construction that gives the ultimate in safety, the new Futuna 50 is the perfect boat for a round-the-world trip intotal comfort, safety, and speed .
