The FPB Programme

Circa Marine is the home to FPB. Offering a unique combination of comfort, safety, unparalleled ocean crossing speed and range, the FPB is considered the ultimate long distance cruising yacht. These are yachts for mile munching. You will be very lucky to find one in a marina near you, as the fleet can mostly be found crossing oceans.

“Of all the boat yards we have worked with around the world over the last 40 years, Circa are the best. They have a unique blend of boat building skills that, to our knowledge, exist nowhere else.”

Steve Dashew
