Large buoyant hulls, made of sandwich foam will give you the greatest strength for weight ration. The beams are large and fit into the moulded hulls giving you a truly stiff Catamaran. Stiffness is very important for the NACRAs. Any other Catamaran will flex and this puts greater pressure onto the joints. With all NACRAs you know that you are getting the best in quality production and ease of use.

The kick-up dagger boards are a unique NACRA feature allowing both high pointing upwind and sailing deep downwind, as well as knowing that you do not have to worry when sailing in shallow water. This is a real advantage for the long distance sailor!

The black mesh trampoline is tensioned side to side and fore and aft. Therefore it keeps sailors away from the water and is drier and warmer! The MNX jib compliments the MNX main. With the added nylon spinnaker, you have the perfect sail set which will last for years. The 580 Race sets a new standard in long distance cruising and occasional racing than any other on the world market. If you have the spirit of adventure then the NACRA 580 Race will satisfy you and let you move into another realm. The 580 Race is a perfect hybrid between racing and cruising.
