The design objectives for the FARR 400 are to produce a fun, state-of-the-art, very high performance, easily managed keelboat 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.

The thoroughly modern hull shape incorporates moderate beam and light displacement, with an emphasis on power, low drag and exceptional handling characteristics.  The deep retractable bulb keel and a near 60% ballast ratio produce a deep VCG and high stability.  These, combined with the ample rig size and large asymmetric spinnakers set off an elegantly arranged centerline retractable prod, will provide exceptional upwind performance in all conditions and exciting performance and speed downwind and reaching.

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 of 8.

All the spars, spreaders and shrouds are carbon, by Southern Spars.  Swept spreaders and twin masthead backstays make for safety and allow a big headed mainsail.

Construction utilizes the latest materials and techniques to maximize performance within reasonable ownership costs, including infused carbon fiber hull and deck. The composite sheathed metal fin keel with lead bulb is retractable from its high performance 2.9 m sailing draft to 1.98 m to improve harbor access and docking, and is easily removed for transportation.  Blue Flash is built w/ twin wheel steering.

All areas of the design have been carefully developed with great attention to detail as a result of extensive collaboration between designer and builder.  (From Farr Yacht Design)
