I'm hearing you Jon, I feel it is aimed at the more conservative sailor but is more about getting our juniors off a Laser and into multis. It is an attractive little boat, even the mums at Tinaroo were all commenting about how "cute" it was, which disgusted me to no end!!!
EVERY family that I've shown this boat to loves the concept that Dad can race and take the Family for a burn after the race with enough floatation to cope with the weight and a spinnaker to boot. Everyone can store it in the garage with a beam of 7'6".
It is perfect in every way, and the ladies in the video that sailed with me were at no point uncomfortable or uneasy, even when i put the kite up. They even said it was better than the Hobie 16 and didn't bounce as much through the waves (ski boat wakes). If you are after a pure race boat, probably better off with an A class, but as a family boat, you will not do better.
Having said all that, I love it as a spinnaker trainer. I've learnt more on this boat than I have any other boat I've sailed and had heaps of fun doing so.
Do you think I should apply for a Nacra Sales position?
