About

Farr Trailer Yachts is the on line presence of the Farr Trailer Yacht Association

The Association was formed in 1977 and was originally known as the Farr 6000 Association. The name was changed to the current one as the other Farr trailer yachts were added to the line up.

The Association exists to promote the interests of Farr 6000, Farr 5000, Farr 7500 and Farr 740 trailer yachts and to be a medium of exchange for the owners of the yachts.

The Association also acts as the sole regulating authority for the Class Restrictions and Rules for these Trailer Yacht classes in New Zealand.

Joining the Farr Trailer Yacht Association is the the best investment you can make in preserving the value of your boat and the future of your class. The Association is committed to assisting owners to get the maximum value and enjoyment from their boat while continuing to keep them sailing.

The classes have been maintained to a strict one-design rule over the years. This has helped maintain their appeal as family cruiser-racers where the emphasis is on sailing skill rather than wallet driven performance. As an added bonus this policy has contributed to the boats maintaining their excellent resale value.

National and regional championships, and match racing are held for keen racers with the national event generally alternating between the North and South Island. Cruising and social events are organised where local concentrations of the boats exist and owner frequently get together at favourite cruising locations during the holiday season.

Membership is only $NZ25.00 per season and is open to any Farr Trailer Yacht owner. Friends of the Association and owners outside of New Zealand may also join the NZ Association as associate members. Belonging to the association provides access to a large and valuable pool of information about the boats that will help a new owner get the most out of their boat.
