Farr Yacht Design
Design #495 Transpac 52

Hull Design

The overall length of the Yacht is set by Rule. That left us the freedom to choose the length of the waterline by finding the best balance of aft overhang and transom immersion for higher speeds downwind when the boat is upright and faster upwind speeds with the boat heeled.

The other major decision left to FARR YACHT DESIGN under the TP52 Box Rule is waterline beam. After exhaustive VPP (Velocity Prediction Programs) and CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) analysis of a wide range of beam and draft variation we have chosen a fairly wide BWL (Beam Waterline) to give exceptional upwind speed. We have produced a beautifully fair hull shape, a by-product of the freedom of the box rule format. We can tailor our design and optimize the volume distribution of the hull to suit our client’s specific type of racing and expected weather conditions.
