This all-custom Farr 42 was commissioned to be a strong contender for handicap wins in both round-the-buoys and long-distance events, as well as a comfortable and stable vessel for offshore use and moderate cruising. Designed by Farr Yacht Designs of Annapolis (design #588m) and hand-built by Jim Betts of James Betts Enterprises in Seattle.
She has been constantly cared for, maintained and upgraded. Major improvements include all new exterior paint (Awlgrip deck & topsides, 2010; Durepox bottom, 2012), new navigational and race electronics (2012) and the addition of a carbon-fiber bowsprit (NEB) and running backstays (Hall) to increase upwind and downwind sail area (2012). She spent her initial years in fresh water and is always dry-sailed. She is a highly-capable and outstanding yacht.
This is an instant A2N or Bermuda Race program. On the hard in Annapolis and available for inspection and sea trial.
