AERO- our former Farrier F9XR
When Ian rebuilt a 30′ trimaran as a 20 year old engineering student no one in his native New Zealand let alone around the rest of the world would know about his future impact on trimarans. Ian Farrier was the inventor of the folding trimaran and his legendary designs would be a benchmark for trailer sailing multihulls around the world. We had the pleasure to meet him on numerous occasions. Our own F9XR – Farrier trimaran gave us many miles of exhilarating family sailing and his legacy will live on in the 1000’s of trimarans around the world. Ian Farrier passed away at the young age of 70. Fair Winds to a great sailor and engineer.
