The Nacra Sailing pathway
The Nacra 500 is an affordable option that can fit two persons. It is perfect for local club racing or just to go out and having fun with family and friends.
The Nacra 500 has a clean hull line, beams recessed into the hull to make the boat stiffer, and high buoyancy to keep you on the water. The trampoline is made of mesh polypropylene, which ensures that water drains quickly. As with all Nacra leisure boats, the mainsail is made from MNX material, fibre reinforced monofilm, and the jib is Dacron, all manufactured by Performance Sails , giving them longevity, strength and performance.

Nacra 500 Fun
The Nacra 500 Fun is perfect for recreational sailing, but can also be used for local club racing. In the Nacra family, we also call this boat the “pocket rocket”. It is a simple but very fast catamaran that is easy to maneuver in different waves due to the large, buoyant hulls. Launching from the beach is easy with the kick-up rudders and skeg hulls. All working gear is from Harken, just like the other Nacra leisure boats.
Nacra 500 School/Resort
Every sailing school needs a two-person boat, and the Nacra 500 is a perfect choice. The School/Resort edition has some nice extra features that make it a great boat to learn sailing on. It comes with a boomless mainsail, which is ideal for learning to gybe and tack without ducking deep. The mainsail is also easy to reef, and the large hulls make the catamaran ready for a sail in different weather conditions. The Nacra 500 is easy to sail with the double trapeze, extendable tiller extension and rotating mast.
Nacra 500 Sport
In addition to all the features of the Nacra 500 Fun, the Sport edition has a larger battened MNX jib that extends to the spinnaker pole, giving the boat more power and drive and less heel. The Nacra 500 Sport also comes without daggerboards and with a simpler hull design that saves weight and adds speed. The 17 square nylon spinnaker packs in a cloth chute with glass fibre entry, making it easy to launch and recover. All in all, the Naca 500 Sport is a perfectly balanced boat and allows you to go fast downwind and upwind.
