The Farr 520 was developed from the hull of the highly successful Farr 52. This timeless design has picked up trophies all over the world and given excellent pedigree to the sailing performance of the 520 Performance Cruising Yacht.

With a comfortable 3 double cabin interior and a carbon fibre hull this performance cruiser is equally happy on the race course, or cruising with family.

This Farr 520 Performance Cruiser benefits from a good specification including, generator, water maker, air conditioning and 2018 B&G navigation equipment.
