Is there anything the shipping container can’t do? It can easily fill the shelves at WalMart but Container Yachts has built a business around the idea of building a sailboat that fits into a standard 40 foot container. Customers who purchase their Far Harbour 39 can ship it anywhere in the world. If they have the desire to sail around distant seas but do not have the time for an ocean crossing, they can pack up their sailboat for snug and safe passage. Later, when they arrive at their destination, their boat is waiting for their leisurely vacation.
The boat was drawn up by world famous designer Robert Perry who saw an opportunity to make global sailing the province of many who would otherwise be left to charter a boat when they arrived or not sail at all.
