New Class 40


Class40 is the most significant offshore racing yacht rule that has ever been developed. The enormous benefits of a simple and strict box rule that allows for design interpretation but limits build and campaigning costs by insisting on inexpensive build materials, has proved irresistible. In the four years that the rule has existed some 90 plus owners worldwide have purchased a Class40. With highly competitive boat-to-boat racing available around the buoys and across oceans on a strong, reliable and affordable performance yacht, the Class40 formula attracts professionals and amateurs alike with most Class approved races yielding a fleet of at least 25 boats. Numerous design houses and builders have developed Class40 boats but now the world's premiere designers and builders have entered this exciting arena - BTBoats Ltd have brought Farr Yacht Design to conceive and build what is sure to become an iconic Class40 production boat - the Kiwi40FC.

No Compromise. Strong and Fast Ocean Racer.

Additional Comments


High Quality and Keep it Simple - these have been the targets for the KIWI40FC Class 40 project from conception to fruition.

The Class40 Box Rule is simple and efficient but on detailed review it is clear that there are numerous elements for a designer to explore and develop. With many different ways to combine these elements within the Box Rule we constantly reminded ourselves to Keep it Simple during the design process.

Following our Keep it Simple concept throughout the structural design, the geometries, the details and ultimately the construction methodology we have arrived with the KIWI40FC - a reliable, stiff, safe, well-finished, fast and aesthetically pleasing Class40.

To achieve this result, the correct vision and approach have been crucial from the outset with Farr Yacht Design fully involved in every element since we launched the design brief.  Farr Yacht Design have enthusiastically provided the appropriate design solutions.


Farr Yacht Sales is the North American Point of Contact for information and sales of the Kiwi 40FC.
