"The Far East 18 and 18R are not just the products of a Western company looking to cut costs, but of a truly indigenous company that takes pride in its work and has created a top quality trailer-sailer capable of holding its own on any body of water."  -Sail Magazine

The Fareast 18 finds her origins in the Fareast 26, but has little intention to remain in the shadows of her bigger sister as she has just as much potential of her own. Her characteristics include high stability and good performance, even in light winds.  This modern yacht is designed to combine good sailing performance and maximum comfort in a yacht under 6 meters.

 

 

Family Racer Cruiser

She is not only ideal for family cruising, but also very suitable for racing. The Fareast 18 is easy to rig and handle and because of her compact size even kids can safely sail her comfortably. The lifting keel and removable rudder of this light weight yacht provides the possibility of easy transportation on a trailer which can be towed by a small-sized car.

The compact dimensions of the yacht and the simple operation also make the Fareast 18 an attractive yacht for rentals. The boat has been extensively tested with great success since its launch at the April 2012 “China International Boat Show”. This small yacht offers a unique sailing experience on a budget.

 

Design

The boat has been designed for the family sailor who wants a good day’s sailing, but is also suitable for a crew of racing enthusiasts. The cockpit is spacious and ergonomically optimized to offer good handling and safety. The deck gear is all in the right place for quick and easy handling as all lines are controlled from the cockpit. This small yacht is easy and quick to rig and also simple to take along on a trailer behind the car. The lifting keel and the removable transom-hung rudder enable this easy transport. The relatively large cockpit seats four sailors with ease. The cabin has ample storage space and three berths. The interior is neat and tidy while the stylish windows make the interior light with an airy open feel to it.    

 

Build

Olympic and World Championship teams have chosen Fareast as their supplier of choice, because of the yards experience with advanced building techniques resulting in light weight, high quality performance yachts. The Fareast 18 is constructed using a polyester/foam-core sandwich which is vacuum infused. This advanced building technique guarantees a light and rigid hull. With a length overall of 5,80 meters she is very well equipped with high-end deck gear and rigging (by Selden). She delivers one of the best price to quality ratios which is one of the reason she has been well received in the market.
