Farr Yacht Design, Ltd. is acknowledged as the top racing-yacht design team in the world based upon one of the most extensive and impressive records of winning races ever compiled by the yachts of a single design group. Farr Yacht Design?s extensive racing yacht portfolio is complemented with a diverse range of comfortable custom and production cruising yachts. Across a broad range of styles, Farr Yacht Design excels in providing well-detailed and thorough yacht designs. This extensive experience has been combined with the design expertise of BMW Group DesignworksUSA, and the production boat building experience of BAVARIA to produce the innovative new CRUISER 55. This exciting yacht will undoubtedly set new standards for production boats with regard to usability, performance, and handling.
The CRUISER 55 is a fantastic opportunity to continue the development work Farr Yacht Design has undertaken together with BAVARI A and BMW Group DesignworksUSA. At 55 feet, there are certainly challenges to incorporate the vast deck and interior living spaces we want to have in this new line of boats. We have been able to achieve those goals while also offering improved performance and safety characteristics that one should expect from a Farr Yacht Design product.´ Patrick Shaughnessy, President Farr Yacht Design Ltd.
With a view to enhance its performance, the CRUISER 55 was equipped with a twin rudder allowing for an optimum water flow to the rudder in the healed position and therefore less drag. At the same time, the twin rudder is entirely redundant which makes it fail-safe. To the same extent, the new positioning of the tank within the floor unit, makes for well-balanced sailing qualities.
Everything under control. Foldable footrests provide safe standing for the helmsman regardless of the boat?s heel.
