|FIRST STP65 DUE TO START BUILD THIS MONTH|
Annapolis, MD - Following on the publication of the STP65 Rule, Farr Yacht Design is proud to announce that they have completed rule research and are designing a boat for Roger Sturgeon, who has campaigned several boats under the ROSEBUD name over the past years.
"We are thrilled to win this commission for the ROSEBUD team", said Bruce Farr. "They have a strong sailing and management team and put together a superb campaign. We look forward to some interesting regattas".
"The 4.8 meter deep lifting keel, 13 ton displacement and ample sail area will make this boat an exceptional all-around performer. It will be also very competitive under IRC as a full program of worldwide events is planned", said Jim Schmicker, Senior Naval Architect at Farr Yacht Design.
Construction is due to start at Westerly Marine this month; launch date is expected to be end of April 2007.
