The Befoil 16 CARBON Product Catalog

“The Foil by Excellence” seems to have hit the mark!

Herve Gindre, Befoil Strategic Committee member, presented this boat to the Pensacola audience  on September 16, 2023 and to the world via the Sail Pensacola Youtube channel!

Herve hosted a Q&A about the boat along with champion F16 sailor Eric Le Bouedec and we captured the complete presentation for you.  Here are the links!

BeFoil Carbon 16!

The Befoil 16 Carbon marks a new entry in the F16 and foiling catamaran market!

At its core, designer Antoine Meunier achieved a platform that delivers safe, reliable high performance with modularity that allows it to be converted from a full-foiling catamaran to a F16 Class racer in just minutes!  It is literally two boats in one!
