About this Farrier F36


Described by Farrier as a true ocean-going cruiser the Farrier F-36 was the flag ship of the farrier design stable. The ocean going, cruising multihull is capable of being demounted for road transportation providing huge versatility for an ocean capable boat. The Farrier F-36 with its highly efficient fractional rig is easily handled by a small crew from the cockpit in even the most arduous conditions.

An aft cabin version of the Farrier F-36 ‘HEI MATAU’ has proven to be to be the ideal ocean cruiser with her current owner having crossed the Atlantic several times along with multiple cruises to Scandinavia.

Ian Farrier first started sailing multihulls virtually by accident. As a twenty year old New Zealand engineering student and monohull sailor, looking for a keelboat to do some offshore cruising he couldn’t find anything suitable. After searching an unfinished 30’ trimaran project was purchased, following a comprehensive two year rebuild it was launched in 1969. Although not the perfect boat is sowed the seed for his future career.

In 1972 he arrived in Brisbane, Australia, where the growing popularity of the monohull trailer sailer was noted while crewing on a local trimaran. A trailerable trimaran appeared to have many advantages over trailerable monohulls, so he decided to look at what could be done. The Farrier Folding System™ was then invented, patented, and the prototype Trailertri 18 was built and launched in 1974. It worked beautifully and he then built five more Trailertris of various sizes, while trying out many different configurations. Over this period the folding trailerable trimaran slowly began to establish itself as a practical and exciting option, to eventually become one of the fastest growing segments of sailing.

In 1984 Ian and his family moved to Chula Vista (San Diego), where financial backing had been found to set up Corsair Marine. He then designed the F-27, built the prototype, and developed and established Corsair’s full production system and quality controls. With 100 boats being produced every year, and an excellent reputation established, it was time to concentrate on new designs, so he resigned from Corsair in 1991, and moved to Bellevue (Seattle). Corsair was subsequently licensed to build the F-24, F-28 and F-31 designs, in a productive ongoing relationship, though rocky at times, with varying ownership/management at Corsair.
