Full Description

Design #414 CM60

The CM 60 concept was established to meet a client’s demands for an exciting but easily handled boat that would be competitive in IMS racing, with the ability for simple conversion to a cruiser at some time in the future. With similar general characteristics to the Farr-designed Corel 45, the CM 60 is very fast for its size with excellent handling ability. The boat is very competitive under IMS, with an emphasis on fast light airs performance.

The deck layout is primarily designed for racing. Twin wheels and two grinder pedestals give good central cockpit space and a clean-looking, workable layout. Cockpit sides are inboard at the forward end of the cockpit and a half-height bridge deck gives way to more space below to accommodate the interior, without compromising cockpit use.

The rig features a formula similar to that used successfully on the Corel 45, Mumm 30 and Farr 40 One Design ­ carbon spar with two swept spreaders and no running backstays. Generous sail area enables the CM 60 to be very fast relative to its size. Fractional spinnakers are standard, with the option for masthead spinnakers for scintillating offwind speed. The jib sheets to a longitudinal track and uses a hydraulic inhaul adjuster system, giving a good range of trim control. Forestay load and mast bend is controlled through the masthead backstay with an external hydraulic system.

Appendage design reflects the latest thinking at Farr Yacht Design, Ltd. A deep, low VCG keel provides stability to carry the large sail area and produce exceptional upwind speed. Hull and deck construction uses carbon laminates on foam cores, with aluminum structure to accept keel bolting and mast loads.

IMS race boats at this size have sufficient volume below to permit a variety of good layouts. Boat #1 has a large saloon area, good for entertaining as well as for sail handling, with a workable galley and private cabin on the starboard side aft. Space is available forward of the mast for a spacious owner’s stateroom with head at some future date.

Built by Carroll Marine of Bristol, Rhode Island, and sold by Farr International, Inc., the CM 60 has already generated great interest in different areas of the world.
