The modern design boosts a powerful square top main and large A-Sym kite. Handling is easy with the absence of a backstay and a cockpit larger than any other boat in it's class.
The hull lines of the Fareast 23R are simular to the very successful 28R which guarantees race winning performance. The wide beam provides a great planing platform for those awesome downwind rides. The 23R is easy to sail, the deep spade Rudder offers very good control and handling is uncomplicated, the absence of a backstay makes gybing the square top main easy. Form stability of the hull is high resulting in safe and controlled high speed runs. The design is very well thought trough and the boat is perfectly balanced.
The keel can be fully lifted and the overall light weight enables easy trailering and home storage. Some small but very practical details: the off centre hatch makes it easy to enter the cabin when the keel is up and the chamfered deck edge takes out the hiking pains.
The 23R is build to Fareast's high quality standards. Hull and deck are foam core sandwich. Pre weight resin is vacuum infused to achieve a light weight and faultless construction. The one piece structural inner frame forms a very stiff "spine" that distributes the keel, mast and rigging forces. Finishing and overall quality is very high and only the best hardware from leading brands like Selden, Harken and Spinlock are used as standard.
The Fareast 23R stands out on many points and provides unequalled value for money,
