Project Description

The NACRA 500 fun is a five metre catamaran designed for family fun. Big enough to be sailed with two adults or an adult and two children, this is a fast, nimble cat that will put a smile on everyone’s face as she blasts across the water.

At the recreational end of the NACRA catamaran range, the 500 Fun is built around safety and of course pleasure! Her jib blocks are on the front crossbeam for extra space on the trampoline, the mainsail is boom-less giving lots of room on the trampoline allowing for a comfortable yet exciting sailing experience.

Even though for recreational sailing, this cat comes with twin trapezes for two to hike out, and buoyant hulls help to keep on top of the water and minimise the chance of pitch poling. For beaching and launching it has the NACRA kick up rudder system and skegs on the hulls rather than daggerboards.  The NACRA 500 Fun is about recreational sailing that won’t disappoint even the more experienced club sailor.
