The NACRA 16 is designed & engineered by the world famous multihull construction company Morrelli & Melvin based in Huntington Beach California USA. Peter Vink overseeing this 16 project as counterpart on behalf of NACRA Sailing International explains on the NACRA 16.

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(2009). 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 this NACRA 16.
