The F-22 is a brand new design developed in New Zealand by Farrier Marine (NZ) Ltd. The low cost 'Down Under'
building environment has kept development costs low, while the finished boat can be shipped anywhere in the world.
An entry level trailerable trimaran was first thought about in the late nineties, with details of the initial concept
boat being published in 2001, but other projects such as the F-32/F-33 already in process had priority, which
delayed development for some time. However, the F-22 was always intended to be a completely new breakthrough
boat, and such boats can take considerable thought and time to develop well. The 'Hall of Fame' F-27 initial concept
drawings were originally done in 1978, but it took another 8 years before it became a reality. The production F-22
has taken a little longer, with the first launchings of
plan built boats being in 2008, while the prototype production
version was launched in 2013. All focus is now on increasing F-22 production to meet the high demand.
