If you are looking to get into the best 40’ racing platform on the planet look no further. Twisted from northern California has a proven track record in the One Design fleet having proven herself over and over again with many a trophy in the owner’s case.

This boat has tons of equipment for both offshore and One Design inshore racing. She is currently in Tiller mode with another wheel and rudder if you prefer for offshore. 

The list of equipment is extensive, from matching foul weather crew gear to a dock box for race day storage.

This boat is a veteran One Design program with all the parts and pieces you need when doing events. 

She has been well maintained by a professional boat captain and is ready to compete with all the gear necessary to go both inshore and offshore.

Designed by Farr Yacht Design, Ltd., - there is no better pedigree for a modern offshore one design.

The FARR ® 40 One Design was conceived as a high performance 40 footer that would gather the benefits of modern materials into an economic platform for short course racing that was demanding, exciting and not beyond the capabilities of relatively inexperienced and mature crew members. The boat also had to be capable of competing in the offshore classes and be a competitive Handicap performer to give the purchaser a wide range of events in which to compete and to carry through times before class fleets were established. The design of the boat and the formation of Class Rules and Constitution proceeded in parallel allowing input from the operator and builder side of the equation. The Owner/Driver class rule was an influencing factor in the conceptual phase of the design, encouraging us towards easy to tune, simple arrangements that would not take time and energy from the primary activity of sailboat racing.
