FastR Yachtwear: Championing superior quality onboard

The company’s textile and apparel experience highlighted an opportunity to introduce a contemporary perspective on crew uniforms to the superyacht market.  FastR Yachtwear is at a distinct advantage as its parent company FastR is already a leading player in the premium apparel market.  Backed by uncompromised quality, their aim is to bring the same level of expertise and reliability to the yachting industry, pioneering new options for their clients at sea and ashore.

FastR Yachtwear Executive Director Luke Clayton said, “One of the most dynamic elements of FastR Yachtwear’s launch is our ability to approach the industry beyond the limitations of a traditional crew uniform company.  Our working relationships with global suppliers and brands is exceptional, supported by our design and manufacturing hub in the UK.  We truly take into consideration the various roles onboard, striking a balance with modern apparel that offers comfort, durability and superior quality.”

With luxury automotive brands teaming up for high-profile yachting collaborations in recent years, the parent company’s 50-plus years in business has certainly influenced the expansion with FastR Yachtwear’s specialist in-house team ready to source and supply the best products and ship them worldwide to any private or charter yacht.
