Location of Vessel




True sailing pedigree, power, practicality and grace is the best way to describe the Farr Maxi 78.

Her sophisticated exterior look and engineering is the work of Farr Yacht Design.

This Farr Maxi 78 benefits from full time crew and has received extensive machinery upgrades which the new owner will benefit from.

She is a true high performance sailing yacht which combines excellent manoeuvrability, impressive speed, and 3 spacious guest cabins – one owner’s suite and two double cabins which can be converted to twin beds. All cabins have their own spacious bathrooms. The generous size of the guests cabins in excellent in relation to the size of the yacht. Owners, guests and crew will enjoy the excellent interior volume.

On deck her separate cock pit allows guests to enjoy the luxury of crewed sailing isolating them away from the loads and winches on deck.

Her low draft winged keel allows close anchoring in many shallow bays, while a fully-battened main and roller furled foresail is the perfect setup for catching the consistent breeze.

The fold down transom is a special feature and will be well used at anchor by all onboard.

Olivier Flahault coordinated exterior and interior spaces, creating a well-balanced practical design with the superyacht look and feel throughout the interior. Farr Maxi 78 will delight the experienced sailor and novice alike with her strong sailing performance, her comfort and luxuries.
