Farr 11.6 - "Correct Version"
As far as I know the Farr 38 IMS which has had structural problems was only manufactured in Australia. The original Farr 11.6 as designed by Farr has a keel which is smaller at the bottom than the top and does not have a bulb at the bottom. Also the keel is bolted to a small skeg which projects below the hull. It forms a hollow sump inside the boat. The keel bolts can be seen at the bottom of this sump. Maybe the Farr office could tell you if there was an authorised builder in Brazil. I hope this helps. For what it is worth there have been 2 Australian built Farr 38 IMS yachts at my club. Both have run into a reef near the club and suffered fairly extensive structual damage. The damage to one of them revealed structual floors with only about 3mm of GRP over the core of the floor members.
