NACARAT is a fast and capable bluewater cruising yacht from the legendary board of Ed Dubois. Designed for easy shorthanded sailing, she is of high tech build with an automated rig with Reckmann furlers on the front sails and an easily managed Park Avenue boom arrangement with flat-topped mainsail. She is built for family sailing with a large owners’ stateroom and 2 further generous guest cabins. Her saloon and deck space is perfect for living aboard for long periods. Of recent build from 2016, it is only her owner’s change of plan that means that NACARAT has come to the brokerage market.
My brief was to build a solid yacht in which I could sail without worry in any kind of sea, a go anywhere kind of yacht. I therefore specified a design with large crash boxes in bow, very strong monolithic keels and partial skeg.
I love the build quality, attention to detail and the sense of safety that NACARAT provides when the going gets tough.
Sailing very fast was not my priority since most of the time we sail 2 handed, she sails like a Privilege or older Lagoons but she is surprisingly quick in light winds
