ACK 55 Performance Sailing

A blend of modern concepts that will change your mind about what sailing is all about! Custom pre-preg carbon construction coupled with design features influenced by Nelson-Marek Yacht Designs previous experience with TP52 and 1D35 designs plus recent America’s Cup design research results.

This space age speedster is turning heads on the water in the US Northeast and around the world by all who have heard the word. The owner of Hull #1 says, “This boat constantly draws attention and positive comments from everyone who sees her on the water.”

The build team at New England Boatworks has been involved in a wide range of projects for 20 plus years but all agreed this boat is all about fresh ideas based on an outside the box approach to performance sailing.

Hydraulic sail handling and keel lift systems are designed and set up for ease of operation by one or two people. The open plan cockpit incorporates ergonomically correct and comfortable seating for a crew of family and friends. Twin wheels with dual push button controls are conveniently laid out for maximum safety and comfort underway. With a boom furling main and self tacking jib on a custom carbon club boom, sailing upwind or downwind in a wide range of conditions is easier than you ever imagined on this 55 footer!
