The International Farr 30 One Design Class Association was formed as the owners association to support the class and promote One Design class sailboat racing amongst owners which led to the class becoming an ISAF Recognised Class. This entitles the class to hold World Championships.
The boat was originally named the Mumm 30 after its original title sponsor Champagne Mumm this sponsorship ended in 2007 and the class rebranded to Farr 30 using a modified version of the Farr 40 class logo. Both the Farr 30 and 40 had been under the management of Geoff Stagg since their inception however in 2009, the Farr 30 Class owners association assumed control of the class.
The boat has been produced by a number of builders with Carrol Marine USA and Ovington Boats GBR building the majority other builders are DK Composites and US Watercraft.
