Farrier Marine (NZ)
Number of hulls:
7 m (22'11")
The standard F-22 performance level is quite high due to the light weight, but not scaringly so due to the efficient low profile rig. This rig is designed to be very suitable for the average cruiser, and not over powering as can be the case with some more extreme designs. However, for experienced sailors who like to sail more on the edge, the F-22R with its taller racing rig is optional, and this is even faster than the F-24, and competitive with the much longer F-82 (26' 10").
The F-22 has more beam and more buoyancy further forward than any other Farrier design, and while this makes the F-22 very safe, it should be noted that the 35.1' (10.7m) F-22R mast is very tall, and with a very powerful sail plan, so the F-22R is not a good choice for cruisers in heavy wind areas
