The F.10 is the largest of the Formulae based on Sport Boats concept. Others are the 9M; 8M; 7M, 6M.
They have in commun a basic hull shape developed over years. A chine boat designed around day sailing, with performance on all points of sail. The chines have been adopted for speed, not only on the water, but also in terms of construction where large panels are used throughout, minimizing the time to splice the boat together, making the F.10M. within the reach of a competent Amateur Builder. The hull is one thing, but in order to achieve the goal towards simplicity, a flush deck has been chosen, along with a very large cockpit, all with the intention to achieve speed.
