Design #535 Farr 85
Farr Yacht Design, always know for our racing design shapes is less well know for our fast cruising designs. While we have created successful yachts for such prestigious yards as Baltic, Wally, Nauta, and others, we have done very few that will carry the Farr Yacht Design name and that have been developed using our totally integrated research and design approach…until now!
In early 2003 an Italian client and his project manager approached us. Their directive, "create for us a fast yet elegant performance cruising and racing design of approximately 86' in length".
What is evolving is our design 535. There have been many attempts by others at this size of yacht, but our client felt that most were lacking in elegance above the waterline. His directive was to create a vision that was not broken up by combings and overly aggressive deck saloon type styling that seems to dominate today's designs arena. Sleek, simple, and elegant were our marching orders.
