THE CONSTRUCTION

CONSTRUCTION

The FARR 400 is entirely built in carbon fibre/epoxy sandwich construction, making it one of the first carbon production sailboats in the world, along with the RC44.

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 fiber volume ratios and reduce weight variation.

Composite stanchions, pushpit, and pulpit minimize weight. An aerofoil section pushpit reduces windage and creates improved aesthetics.
