The Nacra Infusion is the most innovative sports catamaran on the World market.
The boat is named after the method used in construction, the only production catamaran made with this modern Infusion system, this allows better material weight distribution within the hulls, yielding greater stiffness where it is needed, and stiffness is speed ! Hull volume, larger than other F18’s, means that the Infusion drives, and drives hard with handling that is rapid and precise. Wave piercing technology reduces drag and improves speed in all conditions, the Infusion wins in big seas and big winds just as well as gliding on a lake in flat water. In contrast to other designs, the Nacra Infusion stabilizes herself at high speed due to dynamic lift, hence reducing pitching to low levels yielding a far more consistent airflow over the sails leading to higher speeds.
The fully battened jib, the self tacking jib rail, the large spinnaker chute, the Harken cunningham downhaul system enables total mainsail control, ask your dealer for the options. You need add nothing ! It is all there!!
