The Nacra Sailing pathway
Nacra 17 Olympic Class
The original Nacra 17 was initially designed to follow World Sailing´s strict requirements for the Olympic multihull. It was fitted with curved daggerboards at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, to provide extra buoyancy and boost its efficiency both downwind and upwind.
In response to the recent developments and requirements, the next generation Nacra 17 has now been upgraded into a fully foiling race machine. So, at the next Tokyo Olympics in 2021, the Nacra 17 will once again provide full excitement in multihull sailing.

Nacra 17 - Olympic Class
Choose your Nacra
Nacra 17 has the most robust platform to be found in this class. It comes with a wave-piercing design that tends to have less drag and gives a consistently high speed. A strong and sturdily built boat but light at the same time – makes it a catamaran with excellent handling but challenging to sail. It is a real Olympic class catamaran that is built for sailors who want to be in the front of the fleet at all times.
This Nacra 17 Olympic Class was designed in collaboration with Morrelli & Melvin, a world-famous design office known for its America’s Cup involvement and many other successful multihull projects.
Nacra 17 Class
The Nacra 17 class organization is involved in every step the Olympic boat takes. After the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, the class and Nacra Sailing agreed to evolve the boat to become a full foiling catamaran. The Nacra 17 class is open to any sailor with Olympic ambition.
