MANUFACTURER PROVIDED DESCRIPTION
The Farr 280 One Design is a new production racing sailboat by Farr Yacht Design that delivers the excitement of grand prix racing to the under-30’ one design arena. As a modern one design, the Farr 280 delivers contemporary grand prix features and style to a more achievable smaller boat package. The boat has dynamic performance on all points of sail, with a focus on inshore racing for a moderate crew size of five to six people.
The bold hull shape has a reverse stem, a long chine and wide beam carried aft to the transom to produce powerful performance and second looks for years to come. The clean, flush deck layout keeps control systems below deck while the long, broad cockpit provides plenty of room for easy boat handling.
Deck hardware and winches are generously sized and positioned for serious racing. Hiking lines allow the crew to comfortably maximize hiking power without impeding spinnaker handling on the foredeck.
A two-spreader carbon mast carries a generous square-head mainsail, twin running backstays, and a large asymmetric spinnaker flown from a fixed carbon bowsprit (removable for transport). The active forestay and mast tune are easily adjusted using an advanced rig control system actuated through cockpit-mounted hydraulics.
A below deck spinnaker launching and retrieval system provides quick and easy sail handling to allow the real focus to be on sailing. A soft hatch, which retracts from the cockpit, makes the process even simpler.
The Farr 280 was designed to perform well not just for inshore racing, but for offshore racing, too. The optional offshore package includes longer stanchions, bow pulpit and stern rail for double lifelines. Certified to comply with ISO/CE category B.
Don't just take it from us — Sailing World and Yachts & Yachting agree: The Farr 280 is a boat that delivers on its promise of the best of grand prix racing in under 30ft.
