Nacra 500

16 Feet At It¹s Finest

The Nacra 500 by Performance Catamarans combines simplicity and ease of sailing with the modern look that made Nacra famous. The Nacra 500 is undoubtedly one of the finest production boats available in the popular 16 foot range. Boardless symmetrical hulls and kick-up rudders assure easy beaching and worry-free sailing in shallow waters. The innovative hull design has a skeg keel to provide lateral resistance.

Simplicity and value are the key components of the Nacra 500. Like all Nacras, the 500 comes ready to go, with everything to make your sailing carefree and exhilarating. Even the double trapeze rigging is standard on the 500, taking advantage of the boomless mainsail and front beam jib sheeting system, the Nacra 500 provides a spacious non-cluttered trampoline. With nothing to worry about, the recipe for fun and excitement is easy...just add water!
