Designer's Commissioning Comments

Following many years of extensive cruising in a Farr Pilothouse 60 (Design 320), Dr. Stanley Paris commissioned this new design for a high performance offshore passage making and cruising yacht.

Early in the life of the boat, Dr. Paris will participate in some short-handed racing and then attempt to set or break non-stop records as the oldest person to solo circumnavigate and then include the shortest solo circumnavigation from St Augustine, FL, and Bermuda.

Dr. Paris intends to tackle this feat without use of fossil fuels, relying on solar panels, wind generators and hydro-generators for his circumnavigation beginning late 2013. These technologies will also reduce reliance on generators in its later cruising life.

The general approach has been to use modern design concepts and construction methods to produce a conservative but fast and sea kindly vessel that can cover oceans quickly and provide a comfortable and spacious live aboard experience.

A lifting keel provides reasonable draft for entering anchorages. High performance and safety while sailing are achieved with the deep keel, hybrid Carbon, Kevlar and Glass fiber sandwich construction, relatively narrow waterline beam, long waterline length and a moderate amount of water ballast tucked into the generous beam at deck.

The carbon spar cutter rig, permanent roller furling genoa and staysail, plus slab reefing mainsail will make sail handling straight forward, while furling reacher and asymmetric spinnaker can be set from the retractable bowsprit for speed and nice balance in lighter reaching and downwind conditions.

The layout features sail controls led to a central cockpit steering position for ease of short-handed sailing, significant on deck shelter in a "hard" dodger over the companionway and cockpit seating, plus an integrated deployable soft dodger to further shelter the steering station.

The very spacious interior features a huge aft owners stateroom, generous center salon, galley and chart table area, plus two private cabins forward.

All appliances are electric, with energy abundance provided via a 17 Kw/hr Lithium battery pack and a 11 Kw generator during the cruising phase to minimize charging time when alternative generation is not available.
