The Fun is a One-design keelboat that was built by different shipyards. Now available from Cantiere Nautico Lillia, the Fun was also produced by Jeanneau, the Chantier Naval Azuréen and Ranger Yacht, in USA.

The man behind this boat is Alain Forgeot the first developer. He established the specifications and develops himself the prototype. He was then one of the ambassadors of the series.

The boat is relatively simple but the technical details are present to facilitate the set up: lifting keel, rudder easily removable ... The interior can accommodate occasionally 4 people to sleep but the low headroom and lack of storage remember that she is a racing boat. One design of this series is very strict, and there is little performance difference between the oldest and the newest Fun.
