For sale - 2015 model Fareast 28R
Seahorse Magazine describes the Simonis-Voogd Fareast 28R as a sportsboat which 'delivers the world-class consistency, durability and quality sought after in a production race boat, along with the high performance needed to attract interest in a very competitive sector of the market'
Both Seahorse and Yachting Monthly go on to say that the 28R offers fast, fun and competitive pocket rocket sailing in an extremely affordable package with Matthew Sheahan describing the build quality as 'Clean, tidy and with no sharp edges, there are plenty of boats on the market at twice the price and half the finish.'
Lightweight and with the lift keel allowing for easy road or container transport, the Fareast 28R can be ready for racing quickly and inexpensively anywhere in the world.
This Fareast 28R has been dry sailed from new and is based here at Mercury Yacht Harbour on the Hamble River.
