Farr Yacht Sales has re-organized into a territorial business model and added a Farr Yacht Sales Europe office, headed by Joe Hall. The addition increases the company’s presence throughout the world – with offices currently located in Annapolis, Md. and Cowes, UK.
The new division, Farr Yacht Sales Europe, will serve as an outlet for Farr Yacht Design’s new production yachts and for Farr Yacht Sale’s brokerage listings.
“Primarily, it is the opportunity that the Farr brand brings to the table; with a phenomenal pedigree and background in both racing and cruising yachts,” said Hall. “There are few household names in sailing, and Farr is one of them and I am looking forward to helping Farr Yacht Sales take advantage of that and develop their European business in the coming years.”
Joe Hall has acted as an exclusive dealer for the Farr 280 one Design in the U.K. prior to joining FYS. He remains the exclusive dealer in the area and has had success developing the class in Europe. Four Farr 280s are actively sailing in the Solent, as well as one yacht in Switzerland and more are on the way. Hall also owns Activate Switch Limited, a sales and marketing agency, specializing in the marine sector.
