FC   53'

NICA

A very experienced regatta sailor, owner of an IRC prototype, decided to replace his boat with the goal of sailing fast around the world with his wife. He will also participate in the various races and regattas that will take place along his way, without choosing to optimize his boot towards this goal. After an extensive study of the market of yachts between 40 and 55 feet, and a visit of the first FC 53, he decided to order the third.

The dinghy garage was sacrified in exchange for an evacuation tunnel and a large cockpit locker. A hydraulic genoa furler was installed.

As per the clients' wishes, Pierre Forgia designed in-house an original and modern decoration making extensive use of zebrawood veneer. Launched in April 2018, the boat quickly reached the tradewinds highway, and gives great satisfaction to its owners.
