Nacra 460

The Nacra 460 succeeds to the Nacra 450; she displays a more modern look but keeps the simplicity of her eldest: boomless mainsail, skegs under the hull ... The Harken deck fittings such as the construction are of high quality, especially the beams: fixed in the hull that provide very good stiffness. As all Nacra catamarans the Nacra 460 uses the Kickā€up rudder system allowing simple beaching.

3 versions are available: Fun, Sport with a spinnaker and One Up to sail one handed with cat-boat rigging.
