Design #220 64' ULDB (Ultra Light Displacement Boat)
Farr Yacht Design was commissioned to design a fast, light, exciting "passage winner" for George Snow of Canberra, SWS, Australia. From previous experience sailing a 52' ULDB (Ultra Light Displacement Boat), Mr. Snow believed there was unrealized potential in the ULDB concept, particularly in long distance passage racing, and the FYD design team concurred.
The brief was to design a boat with good sailing performance and fun for the price, approximately 65 feet length over all, not too distorted by the IOR, and capable of racing successfully under the IMS rule.
Developing the ULDB concept to feature better all round performance characteristics, Farr Yacht Design designed a fractionally rigged 64' yacht, strong and well balanced, with a deep bulb keel for high stability, and a deck arrangement to suit a crew of 14 or more.
