Jan. 2019

During January 19th to 27th 2019, the boot Düsseldorf, the world’s largest and most important watersports trade fair will celebrate its 50th anniversary. Far East Boats will show the flagship FAREAST 28R and FAREAST 19R. More importantly, the first S\V 14 production boat will be launched officially.

In 2015, Alex Simonis from Simonis Voogd Yacht Design, was approached by Peter Jacops of Disabled Sailing Thailand, to design a safe, modern, sporty and most of all affordable boat for the para-sailing community. As a pro-bono project, the design is made available for free to “do-it-yourself” builders, and several boats have been built to date around the world.

During the summer of 2018, Alex Simonis and Ms. Demolar DU, CEO of Far East Boats, came together to discuss series production of the S\V 14. As  Far East is a company devoted to sailing, we liked the idea behind the S\V 14 project and committed ourselves to produce the first 1000 boats at a subsidized price for those sailors with a disability. The Standard model will only cost 3000 USD ! This price is merely symbolic and is almost cost of material kit of the S\V 14.

Warm welcome to visit us at hall 15, stand D39.
Listen to the full story from Alex Simonis and Ms. Demolar DU, and see the first S\V 14 production boat in our stand on Tuesday 22nd of JANUARY at 3pm.
