Description

The Nacra 20 FCS is the ultimate “flying” racing catamaran designed for both course and inshore/coastal distance racing. This 20-foot ‘‘flying’’ machine is the result of the long life quest of NACRA to EMPOWER SAILORS around the world. Race with a crew of 2 around the buoys.

If you are ready to go the distance you can take her for any long distance coastal racing, that is, if you like to take the lead over any big fleet. A benchmark in design. Wave-piercing bows, spray rails, FCS foils and an ergonomic platform, it will put you ahead of the fleet in terms of performance and joy.

FCS
To establish controlled flight, NACRA has fitted out this NACRA 20 with FCS, which stands for “Flight Control System”. It will give the sailing team the ability to make alterations on the water during flight to find the groove you are looking for and fly over water to leave others behind.

The sensation of flying over the water on FCS main foils and FCS rudders is an indescribable feeling. You will never forget your first flying seconds and/or moments and will come back for more. Make sure you get on one to try, but be warned. THIS IS ADDICTIVE and the new way to go.

Performance Sails
This 20 comes standardly included with a high aspect Kevlar-carbon square top mainsail, a Kevlar-carbon high aspect jib en a full radial cut gennaker to kick it all up a notch going downwind. At times with enough breeze you will not even be using the gennaker downwind and still be foiling. These sails and technology are produced by the loft which the Olympic NACRA 17 sailors use as well.

If that next regatta is overseas, then you and other teams can easily pack your boats into one 40-foot container!
