Construction is detailed in foam core with glass-reinforced skins. The rudder has a carbon stock. Internal moldings combine with bulkheads and composite frames to provide a sturdy and serviceable interior. Prototype work enabled the builder and the designer to control weights and develop a strict one-design set of limits and tolerances based on lessons from the MUMM 36, COREL 45 and MUMM 30 one-design rules.

Interior layout was kept clean and simple while still providing the basic elements for long distance work. A full private head forward, saloon with galley, and centrally located navigation station aft make the boat ocean racing ready. The cabin was sized in excess of minimum IMS requirements to give the boat a spacious feeling for those who would choose to do limited cruising and to provide a reasonable area for after race gatherings that includes 4 lower tilting berths with cushions and a sit down navigation station on centerline.

The Farr 40 One Design was conceived as a high performance 40 footer that would gather the benefits of modern materials into an economic platform for short course racing that was demanding, exciting and not beyond the capabilities of relatively inexperienced crew members. The boat also had to be capable of competing in the offshore classes and be a competitive IMS performer to give the purchaser a wide range of events in which to compete and to carry through times before class fleets were established. The design of the boat and the formation of Class Rules and Constitution proceeded in parallel allowing input from the operator and builder side of the equation. The Owner/Driver class rule was an influencing factor in the conceptual phase of the design, encouraging us towards easy to tune, simple arrangements that would not take time and energy from the primary activity of sailboat racing.

Honour has been maintained in top condition by a fastidious owner. Topsides and bottom fully repainted in 2014 with gray Durepox and a full deck repaint and non-skid in white Durepox also in 2014. A great opportunity for a turnkey class racing boat. Honour is an ideal and highly competitive purchase for a Corinthian team wishing to join the competition having placed second in Corinthian boats at both the 2012 and 2014 World Championships.
