Hull/Deck Construction Details


  • 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 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
  • The lines of the FARR 400 have been styled for high performance and to project a dynamic and modern image
  • The full stem and forebody provide dynamic lift when sailing at high speed, reflecting the latest in design supported by CFD research
