With the launch of the FAREAST 31R, Simonis-Voogd and Fareast are changing the definition of â€śRacingâ€ť in the yachting world. The highly recognizable hull and deck is full of innovations and built with precision to deliver an exact quality to bring you ultimate racing experience with adrenalin pumping boat speeds.
A new era will start with this â€śgame changerâ€ť; racing will never be the same again. The team has put all its innovative powers into creating an ultimate racing machine and setting a new standard with a number of novel features on and below decks of the FAREAST 31R.
The dedicated craftsmen of Fareast used their highly technological skills to turn these innovative features into reliable components on the yacht to create the optimal racer for the professional sailing circuit. This new masterpiece highlights Fareastâ€™s winnersâ€™ mentality: to be the best in everything they do.
The yardâ€™s experience of being a supplier to Olympic and World Championship teams, combined with the expertise of Simonis-Voogd, has proven invaluable in the creation of this yacht.
The FAREAST 31R has been designed with only one goal in mind: to be the fastest 31ft one-design racing yacht in the world. For this, the yacht features an ultra-lightweight carbon fibre hull/deck structure carrying a 1.200 kg lead bulb, resulting in a ballast ratio of over 60% which will guarantee high all-round performance.
The modern hull shape with its flat aft run allows for exhilarating downwind sailing. Boat speeds into the twenties are definitely achievable The Selden carbon fibre mast with twin running backstays enables this powerful yacht to carry a large square top mainsail. The diverters on the backstays will tighten the forestay in upwind conditions, making sure maximum pointing ability and boat speed are achieved.
The deck layout is kept clean as all control lines are situated under decks. Downwind a large asymmetric spinnaker is launched from the built-in chute on the foredeck preventing the need of any crew on the bow, allowing the yacht to maintain level trim and maximum boat speed during sail manoeuvres.
