The Nacra 5.5 is the racing craft that many have been looking for years. If you want a step up from something like a Hobie Cat 16 this is a great boat. It has the dagerboards, what reduces stress on the hulls and decreases heeling motion. The result is a mid-size racing catamaran that sails like a dream. The speed and power of this boat are unprecedented for a boat of this size. Off the course, the Nacra 5.5 offers great recrational sailing and fast cruising.
