A rewarding dual-purpose yacht with speed to burn and civilizing touches

 They're at it again, the formidable trio of Farr Yacht Design, Carroll Marine and Farr International. Whenever this group pools its considerable talent the result is always exciting. From the Mumm 30 to the Corel 45 and Farr 52, this team has designed, built and organized several of the most successful one-design fleets of the past decade and a half. The new Farr 395 OD is no exception. It will tingle the toes of performance sailors (a class is already taking shape) but this boat also has a cruising side. The 395 continues a subtle shift that began with the Concordia 47, a handsome and powerful racer-cruiser introduced by the same group a couple of years ago.

Perry on Design

  • A sleek design that marries the best of both cruising and racing

  • A cleverly designed offshore cruiser that has an interior layout for all kinds of sailing

  • Combining performance with a luxe interior, this performance cruiser is ready for the open sea
