New Farr 727

Hi Paul,

Thanks for the feedback. I only joined up last night and didn't mean to attach my email to the fairing thread. My apologies. After I posted I realised my mistake but I haven't worked out how to remove it yet. I'll sort it out and repost on the appropriate forum.

Thanks again.

Peter Wallington.

paulk Dear Peter-
Since you are not asking about a five year-old keel-fairing job, you might be better served by re-posting your question as a new thread, since it has nothing to do with this one, and people aren't likely to reply to it here with the information you want, since the thread here is titled "keel fairing". Perhaps on the "buying a boat" forum, if not separately on this racing thread.

A couple quick questions:
Farr designed quite a few 24 footers but none that I know of were called Farr 24''s. Most of his early boats were named for thier metric length such as Farr 727 or Farr 11.6. Anyway my questions are:

-Is there a model name for your boat?
-Who built her?
-When was she built?
-Where is she located?

That is a really neat website for a really cool little boat. I have always been a fan of the 727 (I actually own a very stretched model of the Farr 727, a Farr 11.6). I was amazed at the high prices that these boats command. I don''t know what the exchange rate is from US$ to Aus$ but at 1:1 rate of exchange $16000-$18000 is probably 5 to 6 times what they sell for in the States making them a real bargain when you can find one in half way decent shape.

Hi, I spotted your message on the net.

I am a member of the Farr 727 Association of New Zealand, What you know as the Northstar 727 is in fact our Farr 727, and originates out of New Zealand.

You may be interested to visit our website,

We have a members forum and would be happy to have you join in

By the way, my Farr 727, Wild! is the last Farr 727 ever built.

Some people I''ve been in contact with have been happy with Compu-keel. They sell templates for many different designs, which might be easier than creating your own from an architect''s offsets. Their website lists what they have available and the cost.
