INFINITI 56



The Infiniti 56C from Farr Yacht Design is the first Dynamic Stability Systems-powered performance blue-water cruiser in this market sector. Whilst DSS has been used extensively in the racing yacht market and is now being used in the superyacht world, this is the yacht that genuinely changes the way we cruise.

The Infiniti 56 will set a new paradigm for performance in this size range with the potential to sail at higher speeds and lower heel angles than any other yacht of this genre on the market today, whilst featuring improved sea-keeping thanks to reduced pitching. Simply put: shorter passage times; increased cruising range; reduced heeling; less pitching and more enjoyment for the whole family. In real terms this means passage making at speeds in the mid-teens with similar wind speeds.

LOA 17.82 m
Maximum Beam 5.00 m
Draft 4.0 m
Preliminary Displacement 12,500 kg

    The new J-Class.



    We have done a lot of improvements: Mast back. Main hatch relocated and new, round cockpit design. More buoyancy in the stern section. Weight backwards. New teak deck design.
    Result: Better sailing abilities in waves. The longer foredeck looks more elegant.
    4 boats are in production, 3 sold.

      Mascalzone Latino Vincitore



      26 October 2016 - The Royal Malta Yacht Club announced that Vincenzo Onorato's Cookson 50 Mascalzone Latino is the overall winner of the 37th Rolex Middle Sea Race. Whilst a number of yachts are still racing, none of them have the possibility of beating Mascalzone Latino's corrected time. The Mascalzone Latino team will be awarded the Rolex Middle Sea Race Trophy and Rolex timepiece on Saturday 29 October at the prize giving ceremony to held at the Mediterranean Conference Centre in Valletta.
      This race crew was a mix of Italians and British sailors who have raced all over the world under the Mascalzone Latino banner and with great success. Last year they came agonizingly close to adding the Rolex Middle Sea Race to the honour role. In the absence of owner, Vincenzo Onorato, the boat was skippered this year by Matteo Savelli. The afterguard included Adrian Stead, Lorenzo Bressani and Branko Brcin. Ian Moore was the navigator. The sail trimmers were Leonardo Chiaruigi, Pierluigi De Felice, Stefano Ciampalini and Andrea Ballico. Daniele Fiaschi and Davide Scarpa shared the bowman duties.
      Matteo Savelli: “Twelve months ago we cherished the possibility of victory but it was not to be by a nine seconds gap. But our belief in success at this event was simply delayed until this year. And now, we can say we couldn’t expect more. Everything has worked properly and the job went off without a hitch. The crew commitment was remarkable; the only regret was the lack of Vincenzo Onorato onboard."
      The 2016 Rolex Middle Sea Race will be marked in the ever growing race legend as a tactically demanding one, with huge pressure on the tacticians and navigators to keep the yachts moving in the face of changing conditions. “It felt like unfinished business after coming so close to winning last year,” commented Ian Moore, continuing, “but past performance is no guarantee of future success! We knew if we wanted a chance to win this race that we would have to sail really well and get a little bit lucky with the weather. In the end, our luck held, and the guys sailed really well despite tough conditions.”
      Vincenzo Onorato of Mascalzone Latino: “I am really very happy for this victory. We have quite the same crew for many many years. We won together six Worlds titles, I can’t remember how many Europeans and many of the most important major regattas in the world. The Rolex Middle Sea Race is the pinnacle of offshore racing in the Med. We were looking to win for a long time and finally we have proudly succeeded”.

                Model yacht production in Germany is too expensive.



                Bad and good news. After consulting a doctor and the government I have to drew the conclusion, that a production in Germany is too expensive. I have to raise a high credit, I don´t want to do this, I´m 50 years old now.

                The good news: I´ve found a solution for the 3x1, we will offer new boats in September and we will still support the racing.
                At the moment we have only the boats on stock and will produce no new ones. I don´t know, If we will offer a J-Class, C-Class, M155 or VOLVO OCEAN 65 in the future.

                We will be able to individualize the boats in the future also:
                - Sail production,
                - digital printing,
                - painting and
                - repairs/service
                will be located in the new Yacht Performance Center:

                  Hardness test. Farr 280 debut at Nordseewoche.



                  With a wave height of 3-4m and gusts over 30 knots the Nordseewoche was - especially as race debut - a big challenge for our FARR280 "4sale" and the team. The conditions were tough: This Nordseewoche only 50 of approximately 150 reported ships made it to Helgoland, most have remained in the river ports or retired in the mouths of the rivers.

                  Already at the start of the first race from Hamburg to Cuxhaven the FARR280 showed their potential and took over the lead after a few miles. After Haselsdorf the wind shifted to the nose and increased continuously, so that the yachts longer than 40 feet overtook gradually. The last few miles before Cuxhaven were rude, our team was still struggling with the trim.

                  "This was the first time FARR280 sailing with strong wind and waves, we have tried a lot and increased our speed at the tack within 2 hours by almost a knot. A big help was the experience of Dan Scheerer, he was helmsman of the larger sister, the FARR400 "Sonnenkönig". " Hans Genthe has no first places expected. "Our learning curve with the FARR280 is steep - I was surprised about the heeling of the boat if you want to become fast at the tack."

                  Immediately after arriving in Cuxhaven, the team optimized the reefing system to start in the Sundowner at 20:00 in the evening. The weather forecast promised a grueling race with gusts over 30 knots and 3-4m wave height in the Elbe estuary. After this very bumpy tour the "4sale" crossed shortly after 2am in the morning to the finish line, a few minutes after the 40 foot "Intermezzo".

                  On Saturday the exhausted sailors slept and took this day for further optimization and for training before Helgoland in a long swell up to 4 meters wave height. "The gennaker we did not use, we lack a heavy wind gennaker." Dan Scheerer brings fresh wind and new experiences to the team "We gained under 2-reefed main and jib over 23 knots. The large Genni we would have ripped." In this training session, the 5 sailors could increase the upwind speed to 0.5 knots again.

                  The felt the opponents on Sunday at the Capitell Round Helgoland Regatta. "The whole race we had a duel with the X40 "Roxy". On Friday the X40 was much faster upwinds." Genthe is satisfied: "For a 28 foot long boat the FARR280 has an amazing upwind speed."

                  To return race from Helgoland to Cuxhaven the Farr could play your downwind potential: After an hour all competitors was no longer recognizable, with constant over 14 knots, peaking to 25 knots flew the ship over the long waves of the North Sea, too fast. In the mouth of the Elbe with still ongoing countercurrent there was a bad wave. "Suddenly a wave wall was in front of us - we made a 23 knots frontal crash - and then ripped the tack of the gennaker." After the cleaning up and a "creative break" the crew rolled the cloth at the ripped tack put a knot on it, fitted with a Dyneema rope. By setting the remaining gennaker the Line Honors and first place calculated could still be saved. "The luff was completely demolished - a sign of quality that our Elvstrøm gennaker has survived the further sailing." Now the gennaker in the newly furnished sailmaker and Elvstrøm Service Point will be repaired in Osterbrooksweg. "

                  "I am very happy. Although we still could not collect Regatta experience, we were 2 times forth place, a few minutes faster, and we have won awards. With a heavy wind gennaker we would have been better prepared, and especially on the Capitell Cup round Helgoland we would have had chances to win. " Hans Genthe draws a positive conclusion, "The boat is fast and strong, we have no damage, nothing failed except the gennaker. Even the Micronet system from Raymarine works well – despite the extreme wetness below deck. But the greatest success is: Our trim concept works with only a jib and a main, we have covered a wind range of 0-35 knots, and with winning potential. This was the result of good cooperation with the Elvstrøm designers. Only a small gennaker should complete the sail wardrobe yet. "

                  The Farr280 "4sale" is constantly for sale. The FARR280 demonstration boat of dealer Hans Genthe can be purchased at fair value, once sold, the 4sale team will replace the yacht with a new FARR280. The advantage for the buyer: The boat is in perfect race conditions and tested in every detail - 100% race ready.
                  "4sale" is sponsored by the yacht paint manufacturer Alexseal, the Elvstrøm sail makers, and electronics manufacturers Raymarine. For all three sponsors the yacht will be used as a test platform for new products.
