"The West Coast Cruisers"

Farrin’s Boatshop received their first order from a customer in California in 1999. Since that time he has had us build three more cruisers and in 2010 we built the forth boat, a 38’ yacht for him. At the present time we have delivered 5 new constructions and a refurbished 36’ cruiser to customers in California. With contracts for a 38’ and a 40’ yacht for California, we will have nine boats in our fleet on the west coast.

Lyla III

Farrins Boatshop launched “Lyla III”, in May of 2010. The boat’s owners immediately took it on a successful 3500 mile voyage to Cape Cod, New York, over to Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and finally to Toronto via the St. Lawrence River.

The Canadian owners are long-time sailors, who liked the traditional design, comfort and speed of a down east yacht. They asked Farrins to build the ideal boat for them to use in the Vancouver Island and Pacific Northwest area, where the boat will ultimately call home. The owners were very pleased with the responsiveness and craftsmanship of the Farrins’ team.

Farrins started with a Duffy 37’ hull from Atlantic Boat Co., and built the boat in close consultation with the owners, with plans and design advice from Glen Farr, also a Farrin’s customer from Ventura, California. The boat’s design incorporates the latest technology to provide creature comforts and safe, fast passage making, as well as comfortable gunkholing and fishing.

She can be single-handed, but has room for 7 to sleep in two private staterooms and in the main salon. The boat has a convivial galley-up arrangement, ample seating inside and a table in the protected cockpit to enjoy the outdoors on balmy days.


Custom details are the specialty of Farrin’s Boatshop.

Out West’s owner has specified this rolling transom to facilitate bringing his RIB (dinghy) aboard for the cruise to Catalina Island or other destination. Several of our “California” boats have this convenient detail. Also, note the “Cabana” style aft window and door for maximum ventilation.

The 40’ Nola May is a Wyane Beal hull that was started in early 2011 and completed in June of 2012. This yatch is powered with a 853 HP (@2300rpm) Caterpeller C15 DITA Electronic Marine Propusion Engine coupled to a ZF 360A/7 Degree 2:19:1 transmission. The shop finished her out with all Custom Farrin's Cabin, Rails and Decks. She has all of the annenities of a custom build. Nola May was fitted out with Satallite Radio system with Bose speakers and a cd changer, along with the usual complement of marine electronics which includes Furuno Radar, GPS and Weather Station reciever.
