Introducing the new Nacra 500 MK2 – the world’s first high-end leisure catamaran

It has been a while since the legendary California brand Nacra started in 1975. Building smooth hull designs sporting better buoyancy and speed characteristics than its competitors. Fast forward to 2005, two Dutch sailing mavericks didn’t think twice and bought the license for the Nacra brand.

Olympic Games

From that moment on Nacra Sailing focused on improving every model and relentlessly purchased the highest quality standards. And when the bid for the 2016 Olympic Games was launched, Nacra Sailing created the machine that flew on air: The Nacra 17 – the mixed-gender foiling multi-hull at the Olympic Games.

Made in Holland

Quite an achievement for the current CEO and head of the design team Peter Vink. The rest is history. Nacra Sailing kept innovating with the Nacra 15 –  the current World’s Youth and Youth Olympic Class, the Nacra Carbon 16, the Nacra F18 Infusion and Evolution, and The Nacra Carbon F20. Nacra Sailing became what is today the world’s leading brand in the racing community.

High-end leisure

Now Nacra Sailing is taking the next step by defining a new market segment. A brand new design. A boat that is of the highest quality, that is agile and swift but also manageable and durable. So here it is: Nacra Sailing is proud to announce the new Nacra 500 MK2. The first high-end leisure catamaran built to Olympic standards. It is fast, through a sleek top-level design. It is light, made of the highest quality materials and powered by an Olympic class supplier Performance Sails.

Fleet owners

“This is the catamaran you want to have. For leisure sailing, for family, for sailing schools, hotel chains, but also for occasional racing”, says Peter Vink, “If the brand Nacra is good enough for the Olympics why wouldn’t you allow it for yourself?”
