Yacht description

The Farr 280 One Design is a new production racing sailboat by Farr Yacht Design that delivers the excitement of grand prix racing to the under-30’ one design arena. As a modern one design, the Farr 280 delivers contemporary grand prix features and style to a more achievable smaller boat package. The boat has dynamic performance on all points of sail, with a focus on inshore racing for a moderate crew size of five to six people.

The Farr 280 was designed to perform well not just for inshore racing, but for offshore racing, too. The optional offshore package includes longer stanchions, bow pulpit and stern rail for double lifelines. Certified to comply with ISO/CE category B.


Owners comments:


Opportunites like this do not come around too often, our Farr 280 was fully refurbished in 2020 with new halyards, sheets and lines, completely refurbished hydraulic mast jack system and forestay, including new bilges installed and hull touch-ups done, with the built-in Lombardini engine and saildrive fully serviced in 2023. We are confident to say she is in excellent shape, race ready and probably the best maintained and equipped example of Farr 280 that you can ever find. Whether you enjoy club racing, round the cans, or mixing it with the best in inshore and coastal circuit she will certainly tick the boxes. She was kept in great race trim and condition.
