Venomous – Farr 60

Built by Carroll Marine of Bristol, Rhode Island, and sold by Farr International, the Farr 60 was established to meet a client’s demands for an exciting but easy to handle boat that would be competitive in all racing formats.

This yacht is very fast for its size with excellent handling ability and an emphasis on light-air performance with substantial downwind sail area.

The deck layout is primarily designed for racing. Twin wheels and two grinder pedestals give good central cockpit space and a clean looking, workable layout.

A generous sail area enables the Farr 60 to be very fast relative to its size.

A deep, low keel provides stability to carry the large sail area and produce exceptional upwind speed.
