Shanghai Fareast Boats Co. Ltd was founded in 2002. The first success followed soon as Fareast was licensed by the International Sailing Federation (ISAF) to build the Optimist. Quickly Fareast became the biggest Optimist builder in the world.
Based on their strong cultural values, Fareast was able to deliver a large scale building capacity in just a few years time, and still keep high standards in quality by using innovative techniques by their skilled employees.
In 2008 Fareast also became licensed for the 420 they produce. All with great success, being a main worldwide supplier for Olympic – & World Championship sailing teams and markets around the world. Again, not only due to the high quality they deliver, but also due to their high valued service oriented attitude. This all led to the ambition to diversify the product range with ribs and yachts, all built with the same high quality standards.
