The FAREAST 28R One Design from designer Simonis Voogd is a racing keelboat combining the experiences and accumulated techniques of European Design Office Simonis Voogd and Far East Boats. It is a well-designed, easy to handle and high performance uniform class racing sailboat. Even with a length of 28 feet, FAREAST 28R can easily reach the maximum speed of 20 knots. With its high speed, fun and high performance with low cost features, FAREAST 28R has received approval and recommendations both home and abroad.
FAREAST 28R is intentionally designed to fit the wide demands of sailboat enthusiasts. In design it follows the unique outlines of the world’s top racing sailboats with sharp bow and smooth hulls, showing its high performance in speed. Meanwhile, the intentionally designed open cabin not only supplies enormous space but also improves the experience of the sailors.
FAREAST 28R’s hull is adapted from new fiberglass reinforced composite material, using foam sandwich structure and resin vacuum technology which ensure a light and rigid hull. With displacement of only 1200 kg and lifted keel, the FAREAST 28R is fit for various regattas.
