Challenging, rewarding, and more importantly, "crazy fun." War Pony offers committed sailors a unique racing experience.  Want a boat that can handle 300 miles in a day and hours of surfing at sea? Give some thought to War Pony.

Notably the boat was the OYRA, Off Shore Season Champion for two years in a row. This boat is carbon stiff, super seaworthy and very competitive. The boat was raced in the Pacific Cup to Hawaii two times: 2010, and 2014. Elapsed time in 2010 was 8 days, 17 hours — a new record for a less than 40’ boat — A record that still stands. In the 2014 Pacific Cup the owner and his fiance double handed the boat to Hawaii.

The boat also comes with a like-new 2 axle Triad Trailer and spare tire.

The mission statement from Farr International, Inc was for a strict one-design that combines high quality design and construction, superb performance, offshore capability, excellent transportability, with reasonable cost and without the influence of any handicap rule constraints.

What the innovators at Farr Yacht Design, Ltd. came up with is quite possibly the fastest fixed keel (while sailing) sport boat designed to date less than 40 feet! Farr Yacht Design spent over a year on this project with over 2000 hours of research and design work to make sure the design promised nothing less than pure adrenalin pumping fun.

This is a totally new and modern design from the designers at Farr. Built in Carbon and San foam it displaces just 3,059kgs, flies 89 square meters of sail upwind, and 220 square meters downwind on a retractable bowsprit with 7/8 fractional carbon rig, swept back spreaders and no runners. Drawing 2.59 meters, with 10 meters on the waterline this boat is fast and stable upwind and a pure rocket downwind. It is also the first boat in its class to meet the new ORC/EEC mandatory liferaft storage rules for offshore racing.

One of the most interesting options on the boat has nothing to do with racing at all but everything to do with getting to them. The keel hydraulically retracts to meet a generally accepted 13.5' trailer height in most areas. Take off the rudder and it will even go lower. This is also good for those that moor in shallow areas, but take heed, this is for transport and mooring, not sailing.

Tooling for the design was machine milled at DK Composites in Malaysia who are also building the first hull. This will insure the strictest tolerances are met for fair class racing around the world.
