F20 Carbon FCS
With the Nacra 20 FCS you have the ultimate flying racing catamaran in your hands.
The NACRA F20 FCS (Flight Control System) is the pinnacle of beach cat design today. Those seeking the ultra fast thrill of a two-crewed three point foiler will be blown away by the speed, responsiveness and excitement that this top end catamaran provides today.
Development from F20C
This is the younger sister of the C foiled F20C that took the world by storm in 2010. Both boats are all carbon multihulls. Both are built for the elite beach cat sailor who enjoy leaving the fleet behind in their wake!
Flight Control System
Using J foils like its bigger Americas Cup cousins, the F20FCS has a specialized flight control system that allows for dynamic control of the boat’s flight above the water with both hulls out of the water and on foils.
The control system allows for a greater degree of control of this carbon rocket in a variety of sea conditions and allows the experienced team with practice to complete the new technique of gybing without the hulls going into the water whilst completing the maneuver.
Construction and control systems
Standard sail configuration includes a Kevlar carbon square top mainsail, a Kevlar carbon high aspect jib and a full radial cut spinnaker for blasting downwind. Looking to the hull, this is of carbon sandwich with pre-molded shaped core. The rigging and control equipment including the FCS main foils, T-foil rudders, rudder control system, spinnaker pole, boom and mast are made from carbon fiber as well.
While one of the biggest beach cats afloat, the F20FCS is designed for ease of portability between venues. Those buying into this class will find that despite it’s size, the platform can be transported complete on a specialised tilting road trailer.
