Easy to sail, handle and manage:
The FAREAST 28R has a clean, straight forward and functional deck layout. This enables the crew to concentrate on pure racing and sailing fast. The 28R offers very good control with the deep spade rudder. Hull form stability is high and the high performance keel offers the best possible righting moment with a lead torpedo on a carbon fin. The very large cockpit makes it easy for the crew to handle the boat. For racing a crew of 4- 5 is ideal, however the simplicity of the 28R makes it possible to go out for a fun spin or twilight with as little as 3, even setting the kite in a stiff breeze won't be a problem.
ISAF approved One Design Class:
The Fareast 28R is an ISAF approved One-Design class and numbers are growing fast, over 450 boats have been sold. We are building a class in Australia and New Zealand, Nationals are held every year and you will always find other 28's to race against at major events.
Easy Trailable and simple lifting:
The keel is fully retractable and the boat sits nice and low on the custom made trailer, reassuring a safe and comfortable drive to your favorite (tropical) events. The boat is ramp launchable and the mast deck stepped, making you independent from expensive marinas. The 28R is also an ideal boat for hardstand storage, it has a single lifting point on the keel fin and the bulb takes up the boat in the hoist, saving the much loved keel lifting workout, which is not too bad by the way.
Construction and hardware:
Fareast has invested heavily in CNC machines, everything from moulds and plugs to foam and glass are cut on high tech milling machines, routers, laser and water jet cutters. A huge 5 axis milling machine is used for manufacturing hull and deck moulds but also for milling and drilling deck hardware patterns. These modern production methods result in extreme high accuracy, further quality improvement and reduction of labor cost.
The Fareast 28R is constructed using an ISO polyester - foam core sandwich, resin is pre weight and vacuum infused. This advanced building technique guarantees a rigid, light and stiff construction. The one piece infused inner structure "the spine" takes up all the forces from the keel and rigging. The Fareast 28R is very well equipped with the best hardware available from Harken, Spinlock and Selden for the rigging. No compromises have been made when it comes to quality.
