Lets look now at a category of six boats from 34 to 40 feet that are optimized for speed: bendy rigs, slippery foils below the waterline, and weights kept low--in both senses of the term. Each of these boats delivers a thrill to those who are drawn to the pure, adrenaline-drenched joy of sailing. The 34-foot LS-10, built by Soca Yachts in Trinidad, is designed to race in the Tartan 10 class. The Beneteau First 36.7, built in France but about to go into production in South Carolina, is a design collaboration between Bruce Farr and Beneteaus in-house guru, François Chalain. The C&C; 99 is a Tim Jackett-designed 34-footer built in Ohio by Fairport Yachts, which also builds Tartans. The German-built Dehler 36 is designed by Judel & Vrolijk, a team known for its Admirals Cup successes. The Cape Fear 38, designed by Bruce Marek, is being built by a new boatbuilding consortium in North Carolina. And, finally, the Farr 395 One-Design is designed by Bruce Farr and is being built by Carroll Marine in Rhode Island.
