  • Like Wow! That's neat!, or Wow! $14,000 before any options! ?

    I think it's pretty good looking though with good heritage. Still, would like wings for this old back...

  • Yep, needs a carbon mast for solo sailors that like to travel. Could be the same setup/parts as the Nacra Carbon F16

  • Looks really nice and good. Unfortunately it doesn't have anything carbon. From what I read it doesn't have the same setup or parts as Carfbon F16. Maybe we should ask Nacra directly about it?

  • If they read this forum, this maybe a better rig could be a Sport plus option, but then its almost an F16 so who knows??

  • 14-16K is quite a deal when you consider a Hobie 16 is 13K
    The rig on the 500 is the same mast as the Nacra 15 and F16, it's a super light mast, way lighter than any of you would have experienced. Way lighter than an F18 mast still within the realm of being durable. IMO a carbon rig is not durable, besides being easier to break, Carbon needs maintenance which is not really in the realm of most (not all) Nacra 500 owners. It's the same reason the F18 class doesn't go Carbon, and I can tell you I wouldn't want to go to a carbon mast in the F18. That being said, we might be able to convince Nacra do make a carbon mast on special order, but lead time would be long and a carbon mast is 4x the cost of aluminum.
    There are a few Nacra 500MKIIs available for this summer if anyone is interested let me know.
  • Good info - thanks for that -perspective Todd
  • ACTUALLY, if you consider our stupid hyper-inflation, the cost of materials, labor, etc. compared to very mass produced toys like motorcycles and ATV's it's pretty much on par. It's just sailors, being very independent by nature and self reliant are a cheap bunch of fools, and I land solidly in that camp...

    Love the new NACRA's though - I see that the 570 isn't going to be in regular production anymore though. Shame, because I think that would be my "next one".
