Agree with Left Hook, not really showing us much here. Would prefer to just see a normal non-artsy picture of the whole boat sailing...

I've talked to Farr about the design and it will be at Charleston. Several good local sailors who know of my interest in the design are signed on to sail in Charleston. A reputable local rigger is putting together running rigging for the boat. I talked to him yesterday. The boat is expected at Jabins within the next two weeks, and there is a perspective owners meeting at AYC on April 2. There is a lot scheduled for the boat for it not to show.

Farr had a relationship with Waterline to build the boat--the same Waterline that is building the C&C 30--and there was a perceived conflict of interest that led Farr to contract with Premier. The was also some concern that revealing too much was aiding the competition so Farr has been circumspect about releasing details.

That's all there is to it.

Thanks for the info Yard Dog. Keep us in the loop.

I see one is registered for Charleston Race Week. I haven't seen any actual photos of the boat being built or anything.... Farr website just has renderings... is the boat actually going to show?




It would be nice to see the Anarchy 30 aka (C&C), GP 26, Farr 280, Viper 830, Farr 30, Melges 32 all in the same class....

Curious if the boat shows too as i haven't seen any pictures. Farr however has uploaded some videos to their YouTube channel in the past couple weeks showing deck and hull construction. Check it out.
