Nacra 15 For Youth

Nacra 15

Designed from scratch to the ISAF criteria to become the new official ISAF youth catamaran in 2014. With the success of the Nacra 17 in the Olympics, the Nacra 15 is a perfect match and provided a solid pathway for youth Olympic progression and fast, competitive racing. The boats are taking off as young sailors are energized by the fast pace and fun experience of sailing on a modern racing catamaran with C-daggerboards, and rudder elevators. The class is growing internationally and local races are typically open to any crew combinations while official World Sailing sanctioned events are moving toward Mixed crew to mimic the format of the Nacra 17.


Morrelli & Melvin already proved to be a successful combination with NACRA with several earlier designs such as the NACRA Playcat (1995), NACRA Inter F18(1995), NACRA F18 Infusion(2005) & The NACRA F20 Carbon(2010). Both F18’s designed by Morrelli & Melvin became World Champion in the F18 class numerous times, the F20 Carbon is proving to be a true racing machine sailed by the more heavier sailors and winning events on line honors and handicap. Morrelli & Melvin is widely involved in the latest America’s cup designs and always on top of what knowledge is available to implement in new designs such as the Olympic NACRA 17 and 15.
