Our History With the Volvo Ocean Race

Since the 1981-1982 edition of the Volvo Ocean Race (formerly the Whitbread Round the World Race), Farr Yacht Design has been designing competitive boats that race in the toughest sailing race in the world. We have designed a total of 36 different designs. In the 2014-15 and 2017-18 editions, the race has changed into a one design race, using the Volvo Ocean 65 (design № 757).
