Design #320 Farr 60 Pilot House

in virtually all weather conditions enables owners to explore the worlds oceans at will.

As standard, the Farr 60 Pilot House is fitted with a fully automated sail handling system. The hydraulic in-mast furling rig from Selden, together with the hydraulic furling headsail system, hydraulic furling staysail and four powered winches give you complete push button control from the safety of the cockpit.

There is a Navtec manual hydraulic package fitted that controls the vang, babystay and backstay from the cockpit.

The full detailed technical specification with drawings and plans is available on request.

The workshop/sail locker area is immediately aft allowing easy launching of the MPS, the only sail that you have to go on deck to set.

Moving aft the cockpit with its fixed table is the control center of the yacht. The winch controls, furling controls, bow thruster, etc. are all conveniently placed on the steering pedestal. The winches surround the cockpit coaming and are all positioned so that they can be easily used from either inside or outside the
