About this Farr 395


Farr 395 One-Design - This one-design class boat has established itself a rating beater. Next Wave is a racer-cruiser that has been maintained to the highest of standards by an owner that understands what that means. As hull #1 Next Wave has had the aluminum grid replaced by a Farr designed, New England Boat Works installed a carbon grid. This grid helps to make the boat stiffer and more responsive. 

Farr Yacht Design and Carroll Marine engineer a fast, easy to sail one-design that appeals to a variety of sailors.

 Article By Tony Bessinger And Peter D’Anju October 30, 2001

The Farr 395 may be just the boat many sailors have been looking for. By addressing the desires of sailors who don’t want to sail flat-out race boats or sluggish cruisers, Farr Yacht Design and Carroll Marine have come up with a compromise that doesn't feel like one. The performance junkie has only to hoist the large asymmetric, look for a puff, and watch the speed jump. The comfort-minded soul needs only to go below and stand upright (yes, upright, even if you’re over six feet tall), gaze at the comfortable, wood-trimmed interior, and breathe a sigh of relief.

This boat is clearly designed to take advantage of the surging popularity of owner-driver classes, such as the Farr 40 and 1D35, while also appealing to the growing sprit-boat, performance-cruiser market. The rules that govern the class are straightforward: owners drive, the boats carry only five sails (two kites, two headsails, one main), there’s a two-pro limit, and those pros cannot be paid to race. Rising from this foundation is an easily handled, fun to sail, 40-footer.

How the boat is rigged and equipped is what really makes it work for both racers and cruisers. Operating under the theory that simple is both fast and easier to sail short-handed, the 395 has a non-overlapping sail plan carried by a carbon-fiber mast with two sets of swept spreaders. There are no checkstays or running backstays. The non-articulating carbon pole, which retracts into a sealed box down below, should get a design award for engineering- sprit boats are famous for allowing water in through the pole gasket. To reduce windage and the potential for damage from saltwater or wave impact, the roller-furling headsail drum is mounted below decks in the front of a deep chain locker. The designers and engineers also made the bow safer by placing cleats on either side of the chain locker that can be recessed when not in use. All halyards and control lines lead back to a deep, roomy cockpit that can be easily optimized for racing by removing two cockpit locker/seats.
