Rosella 36c by Fareast

Recommended Posts

Hi

I live near a inland Lake and am playing with the idea to offer short cruises for tourists.

When I saw the rosella I thought that would be the ideal boat for it:

Large deck, a shitter and the Option to have electric propulsion

However I am having difficulties finding good information in the Cat.

That ist why i am asking here:

Anyone ever seen one in person? Or is it vaporware?

How many were built?

Is it really shipable in 3 40ft Containers?

Thanks for any help

Ben

You might be interested in the Seawind model that is similar in concept. ie open decks.

Cheers, Leon.

Thx Leon

This one looks cool too

How ist it shipped? Can it be disassembled to fit into Containers?

Me thinks it will be hard to roadtransport a 6meters wide boat.

I've been to the factory about 3 or 4 years ago.  The boat exists, definitely not vaporware.  I walked around it and looked inside briefly.

It was well-constructed, looked pretty nice as far as cruising cats were concerned, and would be the most pimpin' party platform I could imagine under sail for something of these dimensions.  If I had the money I'd buy one especially if end use was what you're looking for.  I would use it for diving and kitesurfing with several friends as you could easily set up kites in all the open space.

The factory is clean, organized and the workers seemed to be well-trained.  It was not like most Chinese factories.

I can confirm that it is indeed made to be broken down into 3 40' containers.
