Design #724 - Farr 400 One Design
The design objectives for the FARR 400 are to produce a fun, state-of-the-art, very high performance, easily managed keel boat of around 40 foot LOA with anticipated broad appeal for Inshore, One-Design, IRC or PHRF racing, and with usable interior space and capabilities to race offshore.
The boat can be easily and inexpensively transported, clearly differentiating this class from others, promoting bigger fleet sizes and lower operating costs. The keel and rudder can be quickly removed. The overall beam and length are constrained to allow the hull to be tilted to fit within the dimensions of a 40 foot flat rack container for shipping, whether directly on the flat rack or on its own dedicated trailer on the flat rack. The boat can be transported on the road without exceeding driving restrictions in most regions, on its own dedicated trailer or with the flat rack on a truck or trailer. The carbon mast separates into two sections and all components fit completely within the transport system footprint.
