Farr 30, 1996 (AKA Mumm 30) Racing Sailboat

Built in 1996 by Carroll Marine

Farr 30 Specs:

  • LOA: 30.94 feet
  • DWL: 27.56 feet
  • Beam: 10.10 feet
  • Draft: 6.9 feet
  • Displacement: 4,548 Lbs.
  • Ballast: 2,095 Lbs.
  • Aux Power: 10 hp Yanmar diesel saildrive

    Farr 30 Design Description:

  • The Bruce Farr-designed Mumm 30 is generally thought to be one of the best 30 foot race boats ever designed, and it's still the fastest production boat in its class.
  • With a carbon fiber mast, oversized mainsail, and massive cockpit, the boat handles like a dingy, yet cuts through the waves like an Open 60. Still, the Farr 30 is a relatively simple boat: no overlapping jibs; no runners; and no check-stays.
  • With growing One-Deisgn fleets throughout the country, Farr 30s are making OD starts at major regattas such as Key West, BIRW, Annapolis NOOD, LBRW, and CalRW.
  • In PHRF racing, the Farr 30 rates an extremely fast +42. Yet when sailed well, the boat is still very competitive.
  • The bottom line is that the Farr 30 is a modern, Grand Prix-level racing sailboat. And while the Farr 30 is relatively easy to sail, it's still the fastest 30-footer around.

    General Condition:

  • The boat is in excellent condition. USA 6 is clean, stiff, fast, and ready to race with no modifications or repairs.
  • In 2005/2006, the boat was completely stripped and de-Carrollized by Tommy Holland of Holland Marine in Jacksonville FL.
  • Prior to 2009, the boat was dry sailed and captain-maintained.

    Why we're selling:

  • We bought the boat in January 2009. But almost exactly nine months later, I became a father for the first time. Now I just don't have enough time for racing. So the boat's gotta go.
