NACRA | F17 Sloop

The NACRA F17 Sloop rigged Catamaran is another innovation of the NACRA range. Sailors are demanding a fast three sail Catamaran for the lighter team, weighting about 110 to 130 kgs. The F17 Sloop fits into the new “104” handicap range and will become the leader in that class just as the bigger Infusion is in its class.

The F17 Sloop adds a RX jib to the RX mainsail and is totally controllable to complete sail power. The F17 Sloop enables quicker tacking, double trapezing and when the breeze allows it gets you upwind very fast! The Harken jib blocks are mounted on the front beam so you have a spacious trampoline which is a lot larger than the trampoline of other boats in its range. Because it is tensioned from the sides and the back, the firm platform helps to keep the F17 Sloop even stiffer and gives a ride as dry as it can be expected from this thoroughbred Catamaran.

Finally launch the spinnaker and then you realise what can be done. You will think that you are sailing a boat much bigger than the F17. It is easy to right after capsizing. It has all the grace that you would expect from a NACRA Catamaran. The F17 Sloop truly offers versatility for the whole family or sporty teams, racing big events and go for the win!
