Nacra I 17 wanted


Recommended Posts

There is already an I 17 up here mate. I don't mind the 4.9 Taipan, but if I were to race serious single handers, I think I'd go for an A class. I've never seen the I17 nose dive, they just keep going.

If you don't believe me, watch this and see the rocker at work.....


And they don't even have the spinnaker up.

Agreed Cruiser, the bow design of the I17/F17 makes it less prone to pitchpoling than other similar cats, but any cat will pitchpole in the wrong hands ... been there, done that! The I17 is a great compromise boat ... a great sail both solo and 2 up. Pity they're not a stronger class.

I admit I have a soft spot for the I17 though ... I was the original owner of "179" in the video. Sold due to wife/baby/house etc, but I'm now back in the market as well and looking for another boat.

I too would love to see some of the 5.0's, I17's & 5.8's sitting in garages move on to more active lives. I'll keep you posted if I hear of any boats sitting idle!
