French term or phrase: brion
Il faut dire que l'étrave est marquée par un brion très prononcé qui apporte beaucoup de stabilité initiale et à petites vitesses.
The dictionary gives "forefoot" in a nautical context, but this is a yacht and I couldn't find the word in my reading of a current boating magazine.

My French technical dictionary gave the same thing. But I wanted further confirmation, since I did not find it any of the articles in Boating magazine.
Thanks.
