Farr Yacht Design


Design #316 - Platu 25

for a well-rounded, light displacement design.

The SG cast iron keel design has evolved from the keels seen on our most recent Whitbread designs featuring a large bulb carefully integrated into a slender fin. The highly refined rudder profile and section shapes, unique to FARR designs, call for a carbon rudder stock, glass and foam rudder blade.

An efficient, no-nonsense deck layout has been designed to make the yacht easy to sail for either the novice or regatta veteran. Complete with sail and rig controls, emphasis has been placed on the careful placement of gear.

Configuration of a double swept-spreader, fractional rig with short over-lapping headsail and large mainsail will allow for a high performance rig that is strong and reliable yet allows for effective adjustment of sails for varying wind conditions. The large spinnaker is set on an "over-length" pole which will be stowed on the boom.
