Monday 28th March 2011, Premier Composite Technologies, Dubai: Premier Composite Technologies (PCT), the leading supplier of advanced composite components for the Marine and Architectural markets are today pleased to confirm the launch of the first FARR 400 – one week ahead of schedule.

PCT announced in January that they would be collaborating with Farr Yacht Design to build the next generation, all carbon, one design 40ft racer, and in just under 3 months the first hull has hit the water having been launched in Dubai today.

The FARR 400 will go through a week’s worth of rigorous test sailings and will be pushed to the max by Pro-sailor Dee Smith, Naval Architect Luke Shingledecker from FARR Yacht Design and Bill O’Malley of Farr Yacht Sales, to ensure all components, including the Southern Spars Element C6 Carbon rigging, Grand Prix two-piece mast and Lewmar racing winch and deckgear, are performing to their maximum potential.
During the week of testing, Dobbs Davis will also be on hand to measure the boat for IRC and ORC ratings. Press and prospective customers have also been invited to experience what is anticipated to be the next dominate one design racing machine.
Following the test sailings, the FARR 400 will be shipped to Europe for a series of Spring/Summer European events to be announced next week.
To date, 10 boats have been sold, a tremendous achievement considering the boat is only being sailed for the first time today. The first one design regattas are being organized in Europe and the US for early 2012.
