Farr – Rudder Re-design

It is nearly impossible and very cost prohibitive to improve the performance of a yacht by changing the existing hull shape. However it is relatively easy and inexpensive to alter the keel, rudder, rig and sails to improve performance.

Beneteau First 26 Rudder

This transom-hung rudder was drawn from measurements taken from a customer’s original.

As always, be sure to check against your own boat’s measurements when ordering, as there may be variations of the same model.

Beneteau First 29 Rudder

We came up with this alternate design after first measuring the customer’s original, on his request for a rudder that would be a bit deeper and higher aspect ratio. Original design also available.

Beneteau 32.5 Rudder

This design developed when the customer dropped his original rudder off at the workshop – he wanted it duplicated but at lighter weight. With a finished weight of about 40lbs, I think we succeeded.

Construction is unidirectional and biaxial eglass over a CoreCell foam core, with a carbon shaft.

We installed the larger Farr design rudder on Escapade manufactured by CCI Composites around August 20 and had our first good test in high winds this weekend. We were out in winds of 20 to 30 knots most of Saturday, with big chop. The boat did not threaten to round up unexpectedly all day—and that was with two novice girls taking long training turns at the helm!
The instructor we had on board wanted to do an upwind broaching drill—and could not get the boat to broach!
He was amazed. Yes—it’s not cheap—but in my opinion it’s
well worth the $$ and install effort (which is not that hard).

Beneteau Idyll 15.5 (51.1) Rudder

The Beneteau Idyll 15.5 is a German Frers design, and they were good enough to send us line drawings when a customer needed a replacement.  Happily we were able to re-use the customer’s old stainless steel post.

Beneteau Idyll 15.5 (51.1) Elliptical Rudder

We created this design for a customer requesting a higher aspect ratio and elliptical geometry to reduce drag. Built around the customers original post, our design has a thinned foil section and and sits 85mm (3 3/8″) deeper than the original while maintaining the same planform area.
