THE ULTIMATE RACING EXPERIENCE

CRW_SLW_BOTY-2016-Winners_FareastThe already superb sailing characteristics and performance of the FAREAST 31R have been fit into a compact racing version – the FAREAST 28R – with a completely new deck, and deck gear layout optimized for racing.

All the details and features on the FAREAST 28R are carefully considered to force a shift in racing and enable the crew to shake off their competitors. The hull is constructed using a polyester/foam-core sandwich which is vacuum infused,  guaranteeing a light and rigid hull. The FAREAST 28R is also very well equipped with high-end deck gear and rigging.
