Announcing Farr Yacht Sales Europe

Farr Yacht Sales has re-organized into a territorial business model and added a Farr Yacht Sales Europe office, headed by Joe Hall. The addition increases the company’s presence throughout the world – with offices currently located in Annapolis, Md. and Cowes, UK.

The new division, Farr Yacht Sales Europe, will serve as an outlet for Farr Yacht Design’s new production yachts and for Farr Yacht Sale’s brokerage listings.
“Primarily, it is the opportunity that the Farr brand brings to the table; with a phenomenal pedigree and background in both racing and cruising yachts,” said Hall. “There are few household names in sailing, and Farr is one of them and I am looking forward to helping Farr Yacht Sales take advantage of that and develop their European business in the coming years.”
Joe Hall has acted as an exclusive dealer for the Farr 280 one Design in the U.K. prior to joining FYS. He remains the exclusive dealer in the area and has had success developing the class in Europe. Four Farr 280s are actively sailing in the Solent, as well as one yacht in Switzerland and more are on the way. Hall also owns Activate Switch Limited, a sales and marketing agency, specializing in the marine sector.
Joe and his team also bring relevant racing and events experience. He is currently working for the ACWS Portsmouth, the RORC Rolex Fastnet Race and prestigious boat yard, Premier Composite Technologies.  With a comprehensive range of support services including marketing, graphic design and PR, Activate is ideally positioned to help drive Farr Yacht Sales as well as the Farr 280 programme in Europe.
The addition of FYS Europe allows for more product exposure and services than FYS currently offers. Owners and prospective owners of Farr-designed sailboats can benefit from a close working relationship with Farr Yacht Design, the largest racing sailboat design office in the world. Optimization services, boat histories, sailing performance data, construction methods and racing prospects can be made available to assist owners to make informed choices.
Farr Yacht Sales is continuing to develop its territorial business model and anticipates the announcement of further added territories in the near future.
