In the fall of 2012, we launched hull number one of a new series of boats that we believe will redefine offshore family sailing. Dubbed Kiwi Spirit, Stanley Paris commissioned the Bruce Farr design in order to create a boat capable of taking him around the world in a solo, non-stop circumnavigation at age 76, with the capability to act as a performance family cruiser following this voyage. High reliability in all sailing conditions in addition to high performance were design parameters and the rig and sail plan have been drawn accordingly. An emphasis has been placed on short handed and family cruising. A water ballast system will allow the boat to be trimmed for speed and comfort! Epoxy infused carbon and E-glass with a structural core will ensure a stiff, lightweight hull.
The concept of this series is essentially to build a number of semi custom boats, optimizing the tooling developed for the Paris 63 while creating boats that meet the individual needs and requirements of different clients.
We are offering three different interior layouts for this design:
