FE 18R Standard Package

$30,353.40 CAD

The already superb sailing characteristics and performance of the regular 18 have been extended into a compact racing version – the FarEast 18R – with a completely new deck, and deck gear layout optimized for racing.

This light weight performance yacht is still easy to rig and handle. Even kids can safely race this yacht making it ideal for training purposes. The overall dimensions of the yacht and the simple handling also make the FarEast 18R a cost efficient and attractive solution for sailing schools.

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 and makes it possible to move quickly and cost efficiently between different sailing venues. This small yacht offers big sailing performance at a minimal budget.


The FAREAST 18R is well balanced and designed for competitive sailing. The cockpit design is spacious and ergonomically optimized for quick and efficient sail handling.

The deck gear is all in the right place for quick and easy handling as all lines are controlled from the cockpit. The lifting keel and the removable transom-hung rudder make for easy transport by trailer and with the FAREAST 18R being easy and quick to rig, participating in regatta’s at different locations becomes both cost efficient and easy to do.

Her large cockpit easily allows for up to 4 racing crew and will be the envy of many sailors on bigger boats with less space. As they say, “dynamite comes in small packages” and the FAREAST 18R certainly fits this description.


The FAREAST 18R is constructed using a polyester/foam-core sandwich which is vacuum infused.This advanced building technique guarantees a light and rigid hull.

This high quality yacht has been built on years of experience, by both Fareast and Simonis-Voogd. Both companies appreciate each other’s attitude towards high quality and design which is embodied in this yacht.

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.


With a length overall of 5,80 meters she is very well equipped with high-end deck gear (by Harken and Ronstan) and rigging (by Selden). She delivers one of the best price to quality ratios which has been well received in the market.

This yacht may look small, but it is big on performance and comfort. Highly optimized to stand tall, be it sporty exciting day sailing or competitive racing.
