The vinyl polyester sandwich foam hulls give a very stiff strong platform, and stiffness is speed! The large buoyant hulls are fairly flat on the bottom, so the platform lays high on the water which keeps you dry and makes tacking really easy. Moreover the good weight carrying capacity and the self tacking rail with fully battened jib help to make this boat a joy to drive.

Clear class rules make this boat to a real racing option. The NACRA 20 one design is a perfect boat for fleet racing and as well for long distance competition, when its pedigree really comes to the fore.

Double trapezing is possible in just a few knots of breeze. The rig allows you to play the power upwind in stronger winds. The mast twists off, opening the leach, reducing the power of the gusts and then returns in the lulls keeping you trapezing at a far more constant position than any other Catamaran. The powerful Pentax mainsail and the fully battened jib get you to the top mark fast and first. Then you launch the 25 sqm spinnaker from the chute and leave the rest standing!

This boat is a true GT, it likes space and open waters. You will love it. To win the Grand Prix, this NACRA 20 one design is the boat to own!
