This beautiful racing yacht, benefits from a Farr Yacht Designed bow modification, from which the moniker "Turbo" derives.  Factory fitted by the original builder, Premier Composite Technologies of Dubai, this yacht has been winning races and delivering super performance since 2016.

The FARR 400 is an all carbon, 40ft racing yacht that combines Grand Prix level performance with innovative design details that allows for easy, cost effective transportation anywhere in the world. The FARR 400 was specifically designed with 3 main objectives in mind:

  • Unrivalled performance that is synonymous with the Farr brand - the most successful offshore One Design office in the world.
  • The availability of next generation, grand prix style racing developed in the high performance TP52 class.
  • A boat with no performance compromises that can be easily shipped around the world on a 40’ flat rack container meaning substantial cost savings.

Freccia has been professionally maintained at all times and comes complete with sails, electronics, and cradles.  The boat has been stored inside since 2019 at the owner's boat store.

Hull/Deck Construction Details

Designed by Farr Yacht Design, the worlds most successful racing yacht design team, and crafted by Premier Composite Technologies (PCT), the FARR 400 Turbo is designed and built to the highest standards utilising the latest advanced composite materials and building techniques delivering a consistent one-design product.

  • 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 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 FARR 400 is built in carbon fibre and epoxy foam sandwich 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 fibre volume ratios and reduce weight variation
  • Weight is strictly controlled using an SP/High Modulus Smartpac design
  • Composite stanchions, pushpit, and pulpit minimize weight
  • An aerofoil section pushpit reduces windage and creates improved aesthetics
