The Farr 56 Pilot House is an ideal yacht for the long term cruising couple who plan to spend extended periods of time on board without the need for additional crew. It shares the light and airy pilothouse, large internal volume, cavernous deck storage, great machinery access and a palatial aft cabin, that have all become the signature of the  Farr Pilot house range. A modern yacht has to fulfil many functions from blasting along in the tradewinds, sailing around the bay in light winds to corporate entertaining or providing a safe platform for family holidays. The Farr 56 is at home and comfortable in all of these habitats.

This 2002 example is hull number 7 and has many upgrades from new. It is push button sailing on board with the Selden Hydraulic In mast furling and headsail furling systems. Couple this with the hydraulic winches and it really is an easy boat to sail. All the other goodies that you would expect on a boat like this to make life comfortable are listed below.
