Farr 3.7 Sneak Peek!

by Daryl Wilkinson 26 Feb 2014 18:46 GMT Stand C10, 1-2 March 2014

Apart from your own personal challenge of guessing the colour of Butler Boats swanky new Farr 3.7 there are couple of other. potentially more interesting reasons to head over the Stand C10 at this year's RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show.

First off, and to carry on the colour theme, is the type of paint the newest UK Farr 3.7 is painted. Butler Boats are working with a very established paint manufacturer who's marine two pack epoxy paints apparently knock the spots off the the more well know marine paint brands. And all with a colour choice as long as your arm... want to know more?

Secondly there's some serious innovation going on at the stern of the UK Farr 3.7 Demo Boat. Yes she's sporting a gantry, but not just any gantry... want to know more?

Then there's the bespoke fit out from the boys at Harken, who have poured all over the 3.7 to achieve a awesome fit out option list... want to know more?

And to top all of that the UK Association has been beavering away behind the scenes, dotting the 'i's' and crossing the 't's' with the NZ Farr 3.7 Class Association and Bruce Farr himself. In order to establish this fantastic little boat here in the UK with all the teething issues, like measurement systems well on their way to being sorted... want to know more?

The UK Farr 3.7 committee will be on the stand over the weekend. Including members who have home built their own 3.7 from the ground up, or are just about to embark on their own build, working from a supplied hull. All of whom will happily help you with any queries you may have about 3.7s! Plus we'll be taking bookings for test sails!
