This Farr designed 55 footer has been a staple of the west coast sailing scene for many years; and is sure to be for many more with the addition of an Offshore Spars carbon mast. Offshore Spars is working closely with Alan Andrews Yacht Design on the refit which will also include a new keel. The three spreader carbon cathedral rig will be a bit of a departure the boat’s existing two spreader rig with jumpers. The switch to a cathedral setup has been mainly driven by the addition of masthead spinnaker halyards which will greatly improve her downwind performance. To compliment the carbon rig will Offshore Spars will build a carbon fiber rack boom for easy storing of the flaked mainsail without the additional weight of a Park Avenue boom. She will be fitted with all new Nitronic 50 standing rigging and an internally mounted mast jack system for pre-tension of the rigging.
