Big fun for a small price
The Nacra 460, the baby of the Nacra family, is perfect if you are just learning about catamaran sailing. Built as a sturdy and safe, low level entry cat, it still has all the high quality materials our other models have. Like all other leisure Nacras, the 460 comes with kick up rudders, a skeg hull, and Harken working gear.
The Nacra 460 comes in 3 configurations: The Nacra 460 FUN – the perfect family boat, the Nacra 460 School/Resort – a great addition to sailing schools, complete with extra appealing features, and the Nacra 460 Sport – all the features of the 460 FUN, but now with a special Sports package to start racing in a Nacra Class.
From small beginnings...
A simple, high-quality performance catamaran for two persons. It is the baby of the Nacra family, perfect if you are just learning about catamaran sailing. However, nothing about this catamaran is standard. It is a real beauty with its clean hull lines. The beams are recessed into the hulls, making the boat stiffer. And the high buoyancy keeps you on top of the water. As with all Nacra boats, the trampoline is made of mesh polypropylene, which ensures that water drains quickly. If you’re just starting out sailing a catamaran, the trapeze can be pretty exciting. Nacra has made it safe and easy with sure-footed, non-slip areas on the side of the hulls.
All Nacra sails are designed by Performance Sails to give you many years of enjoyment. The Nacra 460 has an MNX mainsail, fibre reinforced monofilm, and a Dacron jib. The jib is sheeted to the front of the beam, so you don’t have the hassle of lines and blocks on your trampoline. Like other Nacras, the 460 comes with kick up rudders, a skeg hull, and Harken working gear.

The Nacra 460 FUN is the perfect family boat. It is great for learning catamaran sailing, taking your first steps towards racing or simply using for recreational sailing and enjoying your days out on the water with a sailing friend or by yourself.

Nacra 460 School / Resort
The Nacra 460 School / Resort is a great addition to your fleet at the sailing school. It’s nice and small, has a simple design and comes with some great extra features that make catamaran sailing even more appealing to students.
This special School / Resort edition comes with a boomless mainsail that is ideal for learning to gybe and tack without ducking deep. Another great addition is the easily reefed mainsail, so you can go out in different weather conditions. And with the traditional level of buoyancy, students won’t get too wet and cold on the water, which isn’t great for a first experience.
Nacra 460 Sport
The Nacra 460 Sport is the perfect boat if you are looking for more speed and want to start racing in the Nacra class. It has all the features of the Nacra 460 FUN, but with a special sports package. It comes with an MNX sports jib/spinnaker kit to give more power to your Nacra. The jib is sheeted to the front beam so you always have a clean trampoline. The Nacra 460 Sport gives you a taste of the thrilling experience of what racing in the Nacra class feels like.
