Fast is fun and NO JUSTICE is fast enough.(#79 Design). She recently won the George Town Island Regatta race.This boat has been converted to a Racer/Cruiser so the owners could enjoy a quick trip to the Bahamas for the winters. It's interesting that even today the Farr designs are still at the forefront of speed and design excellence. The boat is design 79 by Farr, custom built by Hinkle Group in Hampton Va., the boat is foam core/kelvar skin and not cold molded wood like most it sisterships (it is very solid), the boat was fractional rigged but a new, Hall Spars, mast was installed in 1996 and is masthead. This was done to simplify the rig by removing the need for running backstays. Note also, most of the sisterships did not have inboard engines but were powered by an outboard motor.

The Farr 11.6 metre (38 ft) fast cruising sloop continues to gain popularity around the world.
Designed in 1978, the yacht was inspired by a trend away from the IOR Rule restrictions towards a 'pure' design concept to produce a fast, comfortable, easily handled and relatively economical yacht. Changes to the IOR Rule in 1977 and 78 were obsoleting yachts the year following their launching as well as distorting hull shapes. It was time to look toward the one-design concept that offered security of invenstment and pleasureable sailing.
The Farr 11.6 metre has achieved these aims. It does not rate very favourably under IOR - but it was never intended to. It is simply a very fast cruising boat but will race boat for boat with the best of the 2 tonners.
In general terms, the style is for light (ish) displacement hull form, moderate beam by modern standards with powerful sections, a wide stern and fin bow. The powerful hull coupled with a good percentage of ballast set low in a high aspect keel with fine bow sections makes the boat stiff and ensures excellent performances to windward (particularly in rough water).
This rig is non-masthead swept spreader arrangement with no complicated runners. It has easy to handle headsails and a mainsail large enough to drive the boat by itself for 'nonchalant' cruising. The boat has a high sail area-to-displacement ratio to ensure downwind speed.
The interior design is definately cruising oriented. It features wide safe companionway steps, 2 or 3 double berths, big galley with fridge and freezer, separate navigation area, separate head and shower. There is an abundance of storage space in the main cabin area and in the wide stern. The boat can cater comfortable for up to 9 people.
Initially the boat was designed for 2 Auckland yachtsmen who previously had owned and competitively sailed one of Bruce Farr's first cruising yachts, and who wanted a fast cruiser/racer to compete in 2nd division Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron series. The first wooden boat, GOLDEN EAGLE, was launched in January 1979. By that time some 16 wooden boat plans had been sold and production for a one-design class yacht was underway in New Zealand and Australia, the first glass boat being launched in Auckland in August 1979. The Farr 11.6 metre was adopted by the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron as a class for one design racing. Hightly competitive racing has developed in New Zealand and Australia with yachtsmen crossing the Tasman to compete in events. Owners Associations formed in both countries control class restrictions and racing.
Today boats have been built in Australia, New Zealand, Holland, USA, South Africa, Japan, South America and Canada. Production building has now been set up in North America and South Africa as well as in New Zealand and Australia, and negotiations are nearing finalization for production in Europe and South America.
In New Zealand regular one-design races attract fleets of 14-18 boats in Auckland. The recent annual Feltex
