World Class

OPTIMIST was born in 1947 when a group of parents suggested the famous boat designer Mr. Clark Mills design a sailboat for children to enrich their spare time. Just like a go-kart, this boat is small, single-handled and easy to learn. The boat has been an incredible success over the years and brings a huge sense of fun and engagement for children all over the world.

Today in more than 100 countries throughout the world, 1,500,000 youths and children are training with this type of boat. Nearly 80% of sailors start to sail in the OPTIMIST and many children fulfilled their Olympic dreams because of it.

The OPTIMIST produced by Far East Boats ranks the top three in quality and numbers. In the National Games of China from 2005 to 2009, the Championship Games of Asia in 2009, the Championship Games of South America in 2010, the Asian Games (Guangzhou) in 2011, and the Worldwide Championship Games in 2010 to 2012, FAREAST could always be found as a professional equipment provider.
