Farr Yacht Design has designed a removable, IRC optimized bowsprit for the Farr 30 One Design, enabling it to enter the HP30 Class.
The bowsprit measures 1.79m from the stem, a length which was chosen after evaluating similar boats and determining that the increased downwind boat speed eclipsed the induced rating penalty.
The bowspritʼs cross sectional shape was derived from FYDʼs proprietary formula that minimizes aerodynamic drag without compromising structural rigidity. 3D modeling tools were used to ensure that the bowsprit conforms perfectly to the bow geometry.
The tackline is routed through existing hardware on the bow, reducing the amount of additional hardware required. A single bolt per side attaches the bowsprit to the hull; the bowsprit is easily removed so that the boat can get back into its one design configuration.
The price for this package is £3,000 + VAT (unfitted), and includes the bowsprit and VPPs. Built by Composite Craft, Cowes, UK.
