In the title compound, C21H13FO4S·H2O, the dihedral angles between the mean plane of the benzofuran fragment (r.m.s. deviation = 0.005 Å) and the pendant 4-fluoro­phenyl and phenyl rings are 6.24 (7) and 83.39 (6)°, respectively. In the crystal, mol­ecules are linked by O—H⋯O and C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds.
