The Fareast 28R was introduced to the US market last year. Since the boats inception we have built and sold over 300 28R’s, they are sailing in 10 countries and have gained ISAF international one design status. Clearly there is a demand for a boat that is fast and fun, but also affordable and simple to sail.
We are now introducing the Fareast 23R. Based on the lines of the 28R with a reverse bow and wide transom the boat sails easily upwind and will plane downwind. With a simple layout the boat can be sailed by any sailor and despite its speed it is by no means intimidating. Factor in the keel lifting system the boat can be ramp launched and trailered from venue to venue.
The Fareast 23R is another high quality, high performance race boat, with an affordable price tag of only $35,000USD – and that includes sails. (Note: I sailed one of these in China in May and thought they were a fun, able, good looking and as far as I could tell, plenty quick little boat. Quite nicely turned out as well. – ed)
For decades sailboat racing has been drifting towards more complicated, more expensive boats. This has put ownership of new racing boats beyond the reach of most sailors. At Fareast we are committed to changing that. We have changed that. We have proven on race courses around the world that we can beat our more expensive competitors boat for boat, and we are doing it on a platform that is fun, fast, and affordable.
