About this Farr 280


Available as Boat Only or Full Package

VAT recoverable

The Farr 280 One Design is a new production racing sailboat by Farr Yacht Design that delivers the excitement of grand prix racing to the under-30’ one design arena. As a modern one design, the Farr 280 delivers contemporary grand prix features and style to a more achievable smaller boat package. The boat has dynamic performance on all points of sail, with a focus on inshore racing for a moderate crew size of five to six people.

With a FARR 280 you combine the speed potential of a 40-50 foot racing yacht with the low cost of a sport boat. Since the boat is easily trailerable, you can easily participate in the big international regattas such as Cowes Week, or race competitavely regionally in IRC/ ORC.
