General Details


This very well equipped Farr 40 has an excellent record. A more than complete sail inventory is included and plenty of spares! Catagory 2 Offshore Equipment and many other extras. If you want to have fun racing the FAR NIENTE is the ready to go!

The deck was stripped to bare fiberglass and repainted in January 2011, this is also when the vinyl wrap graphics were applied. It was converted to tiller steering in September 2011. The epoxy bottom was done when it was last hauled out April 2012, the boat has been out of the water since then. The owner unfortunately has no time to campaign the boat and is looking for offers.




Hull/ Deck Construction
Construction is detailed in foam core with vacuum-bagged E-glass-reinforced skins. Rudder has a carbon stock and shell. Internal moldings combine with bulkheads and composite frames to provide a sturdy and serviceable interior. Cast iron fin - Lead bulb Tiller Steering Aluminum Grid For Mast Support & Keel Attachment Epoxy Race Bottom (Sprayed With Pro Line 3066 April 2012)
Interior Layout
Interior layout was kept clean and simple while still providing the basic elements for long distance work. A full private head forward, saloon with galley and centrally located navigation station aft make the boat ocean racing ready. The cabin was sized in excess of minimum IMS requirements to give the boat a spacious feeling for those who would choose to do limited cruising and to provide a reasonable area for after race gatherings. 4 lower tilting berths with cushions and a sit down navigation station on centerline.
