Bobby Farrell (born October 6, 1949 on Aruba) is a dancer and performer. He is best known as the male member of the successful 1970s pop and disco group Boney M.

Farrell left Aruba at age 15 to become a sailor. He lived in Norway and the Netherlands before moving to Germany. There, he worked mostly as a DJ when producer Frank Farian spotted him for his new Boney M. group. He became the sole male singer in the group, although Farian later revealed that Bobby made almost no vocal contributions to the group's records, with Farian himself performing the male parts on the songs in the studio. Farrell did, however, perform live.

He appeared as a dancer in late 2005 in the Roger Sanchez videoclip of Turn on the Music.

Farrell currently lives in Amsterdam.
