First impressions last!! Here at Fluid Boat Services, as soon as we understood there was a new World Sailing orientated, youth multihull under development by NACRA we were eager to understand what was on offer.
Truly raising the bar in terms of equipment, build quality and performance. The NACRA 15 shares many of the same quality fittings and controls as the NACRA 17. From the curved foils to the self tacking jib right down to the trapeze adjusters. Therefore not only does it resemble its big sister, it creates familiarity and a natural pathway towards endless opportunities of foiling multihull excitment and the challenge of the Olympics.
Having both the NACRA 15 and NACRA 16 for trial and demonstration here first in the UK February 2015 gave us a real insight to the potential of this great new boat. As soon as we tested the Nacra 15 and 16 back to back (which fairly represents any F16), with our Coach's hat firmly on, it was immediately obvious that any thought of the F16 being suitable as the World Sailing Youth Multihull was not to be a sensible or practicle choice. The F16 is a great progression option for the experienced Youth sailor who has come up through the classes but the boat was just too powerful for newer teams to the World of multihulls to have fun on or indeed ensure saftey. Too much power, too soon hinders learning and the building of skills and confidence.
Empowering sailors, the Nacra 15, is the boat that any new team can safely and enjoyably get to grips with but importantly, it has the performance and versatility that will keep its sailors excited, engaged and racing at the highest Youth levels. A truely bespoke pathway class inspiring youth for a life of sailing.
Already raceable here in the UK within the established and very competitive Open Multi-hull Race circuit, as more Nacra 15's hit the water, both the National and International one-design circuit will be the real testing ground for our progressive Youth. With more than 75 Nacra 15's sold World-wide the Nacra 15 enjoyed 6 teams racing in its inaugural Championship at Lake Como Italy in July 2016.
With a target crew weight of approx 120 kg +/- 10 kg combined, the Nacra 15 is ideally suited to both male and female youth sailors allowing them to perform in a wide range of conditions.
A semi-foiling multihull with two curved dagger boards giving lift and that extra dimension, fun and excitement. Added winglets on the rudders not only stabilises flight but allows the young sailors to sail faster, push harder in safety and control (see the Pros in the Nacra 17 Video Clip flying without winglets, impressive stuff!).
With an Infused resin and foam core, hull construction is not only designed to give performance with durability the hulls have been built "future proof" therefore giving any new owner long term confidence. NACRA 15, Fully Foiling now, available early 2017, an exciting option targeted for the 2018 Youth Olympics where the NACRA 15 has been selected as one of only 3 sailing classes along with Windsurfing and Kite Boarding. This gives total confidence that this boat is here to stay at the cutting edge of Youth Sailing for many years ahead.
The Nacra 15, available from Fluid Boat Services, is the latest release in the Nacra range representing the future of multihull sailing at the highest level around the World. The Nacra 15 empowering our youth, the only limit is the imagination.
