Farr X2

Year: 2021
Current Price: 206,000 USD
Hull Material: E-glass Vinylester Foam Core

After months of design and detailed interviews and discussions with sailors around the world we are proud to present the new Farr X2.

This design embodies Farr Yacht Design’s deep understanding of race winning crewed, single and double handed offshore racing yachts, and our many years producing high level grand-prix and production racer and cruiser designs.  The Farr X2 is the product of extensive design development utilizing the most advanced design toolset in the world, including FYD’s proprietary IDEOS platform.  The design is positioned to provide exceptional performance in a wide range of conditions; able to perform in both the toughest offshore races and weekend club races all while being rewarding to sail by both Corinthian crews and professionals. 

At 30 feet the Farr X2 is designed to provide exceptional performance at an affordable price point. The boat is constructed from vacuum consolidated vinylester/E-glass with PVC foam cores and engineered to be robust enough for the most demanding offshore races in the world. The sail plan, deck layout and interior have all been optimized for short-handed sailing; ergonomically designed to maximize crew efficiency in maneuvers and sail changes while keeping the Farr DNA of a beautifully balanced helm and dynamic sailing experience.

Hull/Deck Construction Details

To be an all-around performer the Farr X2 is built upon a very low drag hull form that can be driven efficiently by a reasonable sail plan even in light air but has sufficient form stability and ballast ratio to achieve exceptional performance in moderate to strong breezes. The hull form is developed from FYD’s race boat development projects and draws on lessons from the extensive computational fluid dynamics studies we have undertaken. 

The hull shape maximizes its effective length relative to its rating without adding extra drag at low speeds.  This is reflected in the long forward overhang and aggressive shaping of the knuckle act to make the boat’s rated length as short as possible, while engaging as effective waterline length once crew is aboard and the boat is underway. The hull features a narrow beam waterline and low wetted surface underbody shape.

In developing this design we explored a range of hull styles including full “scow” hull forms. The scow style works very well in races with large reaching and running components but can suffer significantly in light air and in upwind conditions with a sea way. Our objective with the X2 is to develop a hull form that can be competitive across as wide a range of conditions and we have stepped back from the scow with a finer bow entry but still with sufficient fore-body volume to provide dynamic lift at speed and without inducing a significant added resistance penalty in waves.

In short handed sailing the crew weight contribution boat trim and stability is limited compared to a full crew. Reflecting this we have focused on developing a hull that will automatically respond with favorable trim characteristics as boat speeds increase. 

When sailing in short-handed mode the boat utilizes 250L of water ballast per side to provide additional righting moment. The tank location has been carefully tailored to maximize its stability contributions without providing adverse trim characteristics.

The hull incorporates a number of signature aesthetic features that give the boat a unique character.  The reversed stem, topside chamfer and convex sheer line result in a sleek profile that gives the impression of forward speed even at rest and draw comparison to FYD’s other high level Grand Prix designs. Forward of maximum beam the chamfer feature arcs aggressively down to the lower stem to reduce windage as well as visual heft of the forward topsides. The lower edge of the chamfer feature then creates an interesting break in hull reflections and also works well in concert with the deck features.
 

Interior Layout

The interior arrangement is optimized for offshore sailing. It features pipe berths port and starboard in main compartment and an innovative rotating navigation station/galley allowing all navigation to be completed while seated to weather.  A hand pump sink and gimballed jet-boil single burner our mounted opposite from the navigation station.  Aft quarter berths are positioned to allow for crew weight aft or weekends away.  An integrated chemical toilet is forward of the mast with a transverse privacy curtain.  Soft hanging lockers are included for light-weight gear stowage.
