Information from Farr Design website:

#055 - 1976 2 Ton

#058 - 1977 2 Ton

#067 - 1977 2 Ton IOR Racing Sloop, By IOR standards, this design was both light displacement and moderate in beam. This produced a boat that was extremely fast reaching and running without any loss in upwind performance. Design 67 was a very successful IOR design before Rule changes lifted the rating some 2 feet.
The original brief called for a competitive IOR boat with a comfortable cruising interior. Deck layout was to be both useful for cruising and effective for racing. The rig was 3/4 with twin spreaders and runners and featured side stays and spreaders swept slightly aft to preserve the rig in the event of running backstays being released accidentally.
"Monique", built to Design No. 67 won the overall points score at the 1978 Pan Am Clipper Cup, and is still being campaigned with success in her home port of San Francisco, CA. Several boats have been built to this design in Australia and Hong Kong.
LOA: 12.88 m/42'3", DWL: 9.88 m/32'5", Beam: 4.12 m/13'6", Draft: 2.10 m/6'11", Displ: 5,594 Kg/12,334 Lbs, Ballast: 2,400 Kg/5,291 Lbs

#073 - 1978 2 Ton

#151 - 1985 43' IOR Racer "Drake's Prayer" & "Snake Oil", (not as Two Tonners), This design was conceived in the wake of Farr's very successful One Tonners which dominated the 1984 Southern Cross Cup in Australia, the 1984 Pan Am Clipper Cup and European contests throughout the year.

#227 - 1991 2 Ton - IOR 44, Farr Yacht Design received commissions for the design of Two Ton yachts following the Offshore Racing Council's (ORC) reintroduction of this level rating class at their November 1989 meeting. Mr. Yuji Sawano and Mr. Ikuo Chiba, both of Japan, desired Two Ton yachts for the 1990 Kenwood Cup, and Mr. Giuseppe DeGennaro of Italy and Mr. Irving Loube of the United States sought to enter the 1991 Admiral's Cup with Two Tonners... LOA: 13.41 m/44.00 ft DWL: 10.61 m/34.80 ft Beam: 4.22 m/13.85 ft Draft: 2.57 m/8.43 ft Displ: 8,534 Kg/18,818 Lbs I: 15.90 m/52.17 ft J: 4.67 m/15.32 ft P: 17.53 m/57.52 ft E: 6.35 m/20.83 ft
#242 - 1990 2 Ton - IOR 44 "La Rouge" & "Bravura"

#242M - 1990 2 Ton - IOR 44 "Wings Of Oracle", a 1990 development of Design 242, indicated gains in all round performance.

#268 - 1991 2 Ton "Donky 6" & "Atara", Two yachts to this design have been built. "Donky 6" for Dr. Shuji Doi of Japan, and the second, "Shockwave", making her racing debut under the ownership of Neville Crichton, a New Zealander living in Australia. Doi prepared "Donky 6" for Japan Cup competition where the yacht finished a creditable second in her class. The yacht now moves on to the Two Ton and Kenwood Cup events in Hawaii this August. "Shockwave's first racing event will be the Two Ton and Kenwood Cups, to be followed by competition at the 1993 Admiral's Cup. "Donky 6" and "Shockwave" are a logical development from the successful 1990 Design 242 seen on the water as "La Rouge".
