With two more Farr 280’s joining us here in the UK this summer, it’s clear to see that the boat lends itself very well to travel and allows crews to campaign international events with ease. It’s the perfect size to fit inside in a 40ft high cube container making the process of moving boats by ship simple to manage and keeping costs down.
The Farr 280 is also simple to tow. Over the winter we transported hull #3 by road from Cowes, Isle of Wight to Dusseldorf Boat Show and then on to her new owner in Switzerland. The boat’s cradle can be mounted on a specially designed trailer that holds the boat safely at an angle which brings it within road legal dimensions here in Europe and can be pulled behind any large car or 4×4.
This ease of transportation provides Farr 280 owners with the opportunity to sail their boat in many different locations and we look forward to seeing many Farr 280’s travelling between events both across Europe and internationally.
