Northern Light Composites (nlcomp), an Italian startup, is proudly presenting ecoracer769, their first full natural fibres sport boat, combining innovative design and new construction technologies in order to win races in a green, sustainable way.
The sailing boat is built from 100% flax fibre, with a recyclable core, and is introducing a new concept resin, which makes her completely recyclable. The mast, the keel and the rudder structures are made of aluminium and steel, and also the engine is electric - all chosen in the name of sustainability.
Ecoracer769, clearly eager to win the podiums, comes with a couple of distinctive characteristics: a particular angular reverse sheer, already seen on some superyachts and racers of the latest generation; with motorboat-inspired spray rails, and with the rudder positioned more forward than usual. The details were carefully studied by their designer Matteo Polli: "We pushed the accelerator of innovation in different areas, beginning with materials, but also regarding the hull shapes and the layout of the appendices. It will be truly interesting to see the result".
