The design brief for the Farr 280 called for a modern one-design boat with “contemporary grand prix features in a more achievable smaller package,” and the boat delivers with a wealth of go-fast features, including a clean, flush deck layout; below-deck sail control systems; Farr’s trademark wide-open cockpit; a double-spreader carbon mast flying a generous square-head mainsail; running backstays; a fixed, high-aspect T-keel with lead bulb; a large asymmetric spinnaker flown from a fixed carbon bowsprit; and a belowdecks spinnaker launching and retrieval system.
