Farr IMS 31. “ Sofarr “

too bad those things didn't make it to the states (as far as i know). maybe a little under rigged, but cool nonetheless

Really sweet boats - a logical successor to the IOR Half Tonner designed for IMS, fully offshore capable and not much heavier than the OD Farr 30, FKA Mumm 30 - another sweet Bruce Farr design of the same era.  The addition of a swept back carbon rig, mini prod and Code Zeros will have made it even better than original spec.

Seems like I remember seeing one for sale in the US awhile back, perhaps Teal in color (do factor in that I am color blind!) and maybe Annapolis area.

Yes yes.  You are spot on.

In what way is this boat different from the Farr 30 and the 36 ?

It seems that the 30 and 36 struggle to perform under IRC these days, would IRC be more favorable to the 31?

So farr has always been a favourite of mine!

 

Always wondered how it would go in the ocean....

 

 

It finished the 1994 Sydney-Hobert race, competed in 93 too but retired.

'Tribal' did  the Carbon rig and Asymmetric bits, IRC non-overlapper.  STIX test qualifies her for OSR Cat 2.
