Design #667 - FARR 25 One Design
The Farr 25 OD is an exciting, new sportboat currently under construction by OD Yachting of Istanbul, Turkey. Versatility, simplicity and balance are the hallmarks of this unique design. OD Yachting wanted a one-design that would impress advanced sailors with excellent performance yet be easy to handle and operate for the intermediate, weekend sailor. The Farr 25 OD meets the performance requirements with a beautifully shaped hull (developed alongside our Volvo 70s), an exceptional ballast ratio of 50%, a light displacement of only 930kg (2050lbs) and a displacement to length ratio of 77. Many sportboats are a thrill when reaching and running but become painful, pounding platforms when you turn the bow towards the wind. The Farr 25 OD has the power relative to weight to be smooth-handling and sweet-riding upwind. The 37m2 (400ft2) of upwind sail area is set on a carbon spar from Southern Spars. The 64m2 (690ft2) well proportioned spinnaker flies on a retractable bow sprit providing plenty of downwind horsepower.
