COOL BOAT DESIGNS AND BUILDERS – Although its appearance and performance has been noted around Sydney Harbour since debuting with an outright win at Audi Hamilton Island Race week last August, the Farr 400 will make its first boat show appearance in Australasia when VicSail display Matt Allen’s successful Ichi Ban on their stand at the Club Marine Pittwater Sail Expo over the weekend 16th and 17th March 2013.
“The boat has been seen around a lot and there have been many favourable comments about her performance and the results have been steady but this is a good opportunity to put the Farr 400 in front of a knowledgeable audience and hopefully generate some test sails and some solid quotations.” Explains Micah Lane of VicSail Sydney.
“The Farr 400 is a fast performance racing boat, which we hope will develop progressively as a One Design class. It has certainly proven an exciting boat that will do a bit offshore too. We feel sure that the people who go to Sail Expo at Pittwater will be interested to see the boat up close and personal, to see how she works, including the very high standards of construction by Premier Composite Technologies.”
Premier Composite Technologies is the builder of the series-build Farr 400 One Design and has a long history of building high quality custom, semi custom and production yachts including previously the Farr 40, Farr 30 (Mumm 30), the Farr 52, custom and semi custom builds for designers such as Jason Ker, Mark Mills, Farr Yacht Design, Botin Partners, Judel/Vrolijk and Carkeek and Partners.
Their state of the art marine composites division is contained within their 30,000 sq m purpose built facilities in the Dubai Investments Park. Continued success for their market leading building and architecture divisions underwrites the company’s high level of investment in technology.
