Nacira 69 – Fast cruising sailing yacht

25 knots in the Strait of Bonifacio. Flat sea. Perfect conditions. Time to sail. Fast.
Designed on a new generation hull derived from the Imoca 60 by Guillaume Verdier and Axel de Beaufort, this state-of-the-art ship is halfway between racing and cruising, combining a bespoke elegant design with sailing performances.
The hull is made of carbon pre-peg to get a lighter construction and ensure a sustained increase of the overall performance. On the deck and on some interior panels and bulkheads, nomex is used.
The mast and the boom are in carbon, resting on deck to allow maximum use of the interior spaces and moved further towards the stern, very close to the longitudinal center of the boat.
A retractable-tilting keel, with a variable draft from 2.50 m to 4.25 m ensure high performances and versatility ‍ –
