Bruce Farr Yacht Design

Bruce Farr Yacht Design, under leadership of master naval architect Bruce Farr, is known as one of the most successful sailing racing-yacht design team in the world. This is because Farr Yacht Design enjoys one of the most extensive and impressive records of race.  The company also has a history of conceiving many successful luxury yachts.

Their long-running record of achievement dates back more than 20 years.  It includes 40 World Championships won in Farr designs and a multitude of victories at internationally prestigious grand prix yachting events, such as the Whitbread Round the World Race (now the Volvo Ocean Race) Admiral's Cup, Commodores' Cup, Kenwood Cup, Sardinia Cup, Southern Cross and many others. The company has also had a long association with many America’s Cup challenger yachts.

The luxury yachts produced understandably have an emphasis on speed and performance, although this does not need to be at the expense of comfort. Here are some yachts you can currently charter which come from the Bruce Farr stable.
