Farr 11.6 sailing yacht sold by Flagstaff Marine.

Undoubtedly one of the worlds best known and successful yacht designers is Bruce Farr and one of his most popular designs was the Farr 11.6 / 38 being a fast cruising sloop with many still plying Australian and New Zealand waters and beyond as well as strong fleets competing in club racing.

In general terms, the style is for a light (ish) displacement hull form, moderate beam with powerful sections, a wide stern and fin bow. The powerful hull coupled with a good percentage of ballast set low in a high aspect keel with fine bow sections makes the boat stiff and ensures excellent performances to windward (particularly in rough water).

The interior design is definitely cruising oriented. It features wide safe companionway steps, 2 double berths, galley with top opening fridge and freezer, separate navigation area and a private separate head and shower. There is an abundance of storage space in the main cabin area and in the wide stern.
Despite the competitiveness in racing among the owners and crews of these yachts, there are many owners who simply cruise and Olivia is extremely well set up to do just this with her great bimini and dodger affording all weather protection, autopilot for ease of short handed (or simply lazy) sailing, good water capacity and solar panels to keep the batteries juiced up. At anchor the large sugar scoop makes for easy access from the water and her tiller lifts right up out of the way making the cockpit very spacious for a 38 footer. The interior has excellent light and airflow, good timber finishes and creature comforts including the large saloon, fans and TV all providing great accommodation when staying on- board.

Olivia is located at Coffs Harbour and is also on the Australian Shipping Register. She has completed several offshore adventures and is ready to take her new owner wherever you plan to cruise.
