Description: The boat was drawn in the early 80's by the Etarn design team in France. Most of the boats were built at the Soubise Yard in France (they still make catamarans and other custom designs today). The original owner decided to use the French CNB yard that is famous for its Lagoon Catamarans. Being built a decade later, allowed for some new innovation in building that made her lighter and stiffer than her predecessors. Fiu is also the, only one I have seen, that is aft cockpit, sloop/solent rig and setup as a family boat for 2 or more. Her lines always bring onlookers commenting on her pedigree.
The reaction we get, when someone comes to view Fiu, is that this boat must be seen. Many boats advertise well and have great pictures. But, we are always told, that she is better in person. Being a custom boat, it is difficult to understand layout, woodwork condition, and overall quality of build. Setup an appointment to view Fiu today. You will not be disappointed.

WELL BUILT, LIGHT AND STIFF:
Displacement 20,000 lbs.
Ballast 9500 lbs.
Mast Height 54'
These numbers tell a lot. When you look at nearly a 50/50 displacement to ballast ratio, you know the boat is built with the weight in the right area. The deck is FOAM cored. Toe rail down is solid fiberglass with an additional longitudinal stringer midway down between the bulkheads. The boat has a modified full keel, with keel/transom hung rudder all the way aft for optional tiller steering. The swing keel increases draft from 4'9" to 7'9".
FAST, STABLE AND QUIET:
The short mast, boom and small head sail are evidence enough of her easily driven hull. The rig has all of the performance tweaks to make racers happy. There is a spinnaker and whisker pole, but I have not used either. All of the hardware is present to use them. We are always sailing in the 7 knot range and peaking in the 8's. I am sure with a racer mentality and new sails, she would be at the front of any PHRF fleet. For us, the small sail plan and easy speed, make it a pleasure to sail and a boat we have never felt insecure with.
