Design #74 Farr 5000
Following the success of the '6000' Trailer Sailer designed in May 1977, Sea Nymph Boats of Auckland (now McDell Marine) commissioned us to design a very economical boat to suit smaller car requirements for towing.
The decision was to continue with the styling and appeal of the '6000' to produce a smaller version with a family association. Considerable thought was given to interior appointments and economy whilst retaining the essential features of the bigger boat.
The length of 5 metres gives a roomy cockpit and retains a spacious interior with the successful sloping aft end of the cabin developed on the '6000' repeated on this design. This feature will be even more valuable on the '5000' as it compliments both the day sailing and accommodation aspects of boat use, thus considerable comfort is retained on deck and below.
