FAREAST 23R - uncomplicated pure fun
Tested by Australian Sailing Magazine - "The sporty club racer that offers lots of bang for your buck" What a steal $52,500 including a full set of racing sails with a powerfull square top main. The Fareast 23R is an uncomplicated high performance boat that is easy to sail and control, and with less to spend offering more fun!
The hull lines of the Fareast 23R are simular to the very successful 28R which guarantees race winning performance. It's very beamy providing a great planing platform for those awesome downwind rides. The 23R is easy to sail, the deep spade Rudder gives 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 offering 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 nice details: the off centre hatch makes it easy to enter the cabin when the keel is up and the chamfered deck edge takes the pain out of hiking, no more excuses guys!
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 light weight "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,
