The Farr 40 One Design is the latest collaboration of Farr International, Inc., and Carroll Marine, Ltd. As designers and builders, these two sailing brain trusts are clearly among the best in the world. As the creators of successful big-boat one-design classes, they may well be the best. More and more racing sailors are challenged by the prospect of competing on a level playing field; the new Farr 40, designed to fill the niche for a midsize boat between the Mumm 30 and the Corel 45, demonstrates the rising popularity of one-design racing-31 boats were sold the first year.
The roster of owners of the new Farr 40 One Design demonstrates the widespread popularity of the boat. Owners are from Sweden, Japan, Brazil and both coasts of the United States. Although $235,000 may seem like a lot of money for a 40-foot boat, to sailors used to spending the megabucks required for big-time international racing, the simplicity and affordability of top-level one-design racing is very alluring indeed. In fact, one devoted Farr 40 owner from Sweden bought two boats, one to compete in Europe and one to race on this side of the Atlantic. He still contends that he is money ahead.
