FAREAST 26 - Comfort and Performance

This entry level yacht set the bar high for those who want to compete with it on price, performance and quality. It is the ultimate sporty and easy to sail keel yacht, with beautiful lines so characteristic of the world renowned designs of Simonis-Voogd.

The FAREAST 26 started the successful partnership between Fareast yacht builders and yacht designers Simonis-Voogd. Her exciting hull lines and many of her other features are developed out of the many large award winning racing and cruising yachts created by the designers over the last 30 years. This high performance cruiser has moved the goalposts, where quality and performance reigns supreme while maintaining its ability to meet all other requirements. It assures ease of mind and gives the sailor the confidence to go sailing no matter how the weather may change or how unknown the waters may be, knowing that he sets out with the best tools for the job.

Your interest can be racing or cruising, or simply a place to spend quality time with those who matter most to you. The flexibility of the FAREAST 26 design allows you to enjoy all that in one yacht. You can keep her in a marina, at a mooring, ashore or at home on a trailer, ready to go, whenever and wherever you want to go. With a well thought out deck layout and ergonomic cockpit design offering maximum safety and protection, the FAREAST 26 becomes a real pleasure for everyone to enjoy sailing.

The modern concept of the yacht with its raised topsides makes it a dry yacht to sail even in rougher offshore conditions normally left to much larger yachts to tackle. The FAREAST 26 makes sailing as easy and comfortable as it can get; from transporting it on a trailer behind your car to sailing out of the harbour, all can be done within half an hour. The moment you are on the water you start enjoying its excellent performance and ergonomically designed exterior and interior layout.

Comfortable sailing on the FAREAST 26 is not only about the ease of handling and the performance, but also means; standing headroom, ample hatches for ventilation (4), plenty of storage, five bunks to sleep, a separate closed off heads with a toilet and basin for privacy when needed and a cooking facility by means of a counter with stove which can be slid out of the way when not needed. On deck all halyards lead into the cockpit, only self-tailing winches are used together with numerous other extras which are standard on this yacht.

The FAREAST 26 is conceived to be unmatched in its class, set to out- performing the competition on all levels; quality wise, performance wise, comfort wise, design wise and even price wise.
