The asymmetric deck layout follows modern Grand Prix race boat practice for high efficiency and fast maneuvers. A primary grinder pedestal system allows for high speed spinnaker gybes, sail hoists and string line spinnaker drops. These efficiencies combined with the high stability hull form and ballast package allow the boat to be raced successfully with an intended crew
Constuction utilizes the latest materials and techniques to maximize performance within reasonable ownership costs, including infused carbon fibre hull and deck. The composite sheathed metal fin keel with lead bulb is easily removed for transportation. The steering system and carbon rudder have been designed to accommodate both tiller and twin wheel steering.
DECKGEAR The carbon pedestal and two carbon primary winches are the heart of the FARR 400. These tools allow for TP52 style racing. The power and line speed that is generated by this combination allow for ultra-fast hoists, gybes, and douses
DECK LAYOUT - The Farr 400 is aggressively designed deck for function and aesthetics - Asymmetric starboard cabin side to allow direct line pit functions minimizing line friction - Aerodynamic and comfortable sheer radius detail
- Generous oversized cockpit
- Proven winch spacing and general layout based on GP42
WINCHES Pedestal driven six speed primary winches. Superior winch speed on asymmetric spinnaker gybes Winch driven spinnaker hoist
The FARR 400 is entirely built in carbon fiber/epoxy sandwich construction, making it one of the first carbon production sailboats in the world. All major geometry is created by precision 5 axis milling which is usually only available for Grand Prix and America’s Cup projects. This ensures that the highly optimized geometry of the hull, keel and rudder are carried through the production process and into the final design with consistently accurate tooling. Hull, deck, and interior structure are fabricated with vacuum infusion technology to ensure high fiber volume ratios and reduce weight variation. Composite stanchions, pushpit, and pulpit minimize weight. An aerofoil section pushpit reduces windage and creates improved aesthetics.
- All major components of the hull, deck, and structure are optimized carbon/epoxy construction.
- Hull, deck, and interior structure are fabricated with vacuum infusion technology to ensure high fiber ratio and constant part weight.
- All major tooling has been created by precision 5 axis milling.
- Weight is strictly controlled using SP High Modulus B3 Smart Pac design. The B3 Smart Pac is a three dimensionally designed fiber and core package that is tailor made for the FARR 400. This package ensure that every boat has exactly the same amount of materials to guarantee optimized construction and one-design uniformity.
- 2011 ISO standards and Category 2 standards.
- Polyester Gelcoat Above Waterline Finish (Hull: White, Deck: Matterhorn White).
- Primed below waterline.
The lines of the FARR 400 have been styled for high performance and to project a dynamic and modern image.
The full stem and powerful forebody provide dynamic lift when sailing at high speed reflecting the latest in design supported by CFD research.
Moderate topside flare is limited to max beam for transportation considerations.
Powerful stern sections incorporate a partial chine for improved high speed handling and reduced drag Refined low drag hull form designed to operate comfortably at higher heel angles to maximize efficiency of the deep keel whilst still achieving high performance downwind.

IMPROVEMENTS AND MODIFICATIONS
In 2015 Greg Stewart (Nelson-Marek) was hired to design and oversee modifications to "Rock & Roll." Stewart designed a new bow section and improved design for the keel fin as well. Westerly Marine performed the modifications with Stewart's oversight. The bow improvements added better performance, more details are available upon request.
Bow modification that was within the forward 15% and allowed 400mm to be added to the forward end of LOA there by fining up the entry.
Bow extended 16" at waterline.
Substantial improvement in wave-handling, both
upwind and downwind. Big improvement in downwind speed.
Major reduction in water ingress.
Keel Fin Modification
See diagram in photos
Keel modified Dec 2015, adding 5.5" at bottom of fin.
Big improvement in acceleration out of tacks
- Beam of 3.42 m (11.22 ft) and length of 11.8m (38.71 ft) allows for economical delivery on flatbed truck.
- The Mast separates into two sections to allow easy transport with hull
- Boat is transported with pulpit, pushpit and stanchions in place.
The boat can be easily and inexpensively transported. The keel and rudder can be quickly removed. The boat can be transported on the road without exceeding driving restrictions in the United States. The carbon mast separates into two sections and all components within the transport system footprint.
