Fareast 31

This one is super modern....and not European. It is Chinese

What a boat!!!! 1800kg with 1200 of ballast, yes it is not a mistake, 67% of B/D ratio, a record and not on a very narrow boat (2.95m) The ballast is all on a bulb 2.10m. This is an incredible powerful boat: 1800kg to 65m2 of sail? That is pretty incredible....and Chinese, all in carbon of course. A Simonis / Voogd design like the previous and less aggressive but certainly cheaper Fareast 26.

The Fareast 26 impressed me when I saw it in Dusseldorf some years ago but I bet this one will impress me even more. It will be there next year.
