The Akurra is the latest, no compromise, F18 from Goodall Design. We have designed, refined and engineered this racing machine into the fastest, stiffest and most accurate boats we have ever built!!!
The Goodall Akurra is the racing machine for those who want to push hard. Incorporating wave-piercing technology, the high volume bows provide a stability that allows sailors to drive the boat harder and faster with confidence. The NEW Akurra has more volume in the transom to offer better fore/aft stability for that locked in, safe feel downwind!!
The NEW high aspect rudders further decrease drag while maintaining the amazing low speed manoeuvring for those start line duels. The design nerds have also created a rudder that lifts vertically for easy of beach landings and storage.
Highly precise gybing daggerboards increase upwind angles and decrease hull drag. The NEW Daggerboard Rake system gives full customization to sailors who want to alter the feel and balance of the boat.
Traveling at high speed is all about drag reduction; and when the Akurra lights up you know you are traveling at high speed. The Akurra rig is designed to balance drag reduction and power generation so you have the best velocity output.
The sealed Aero tramp fully optimises the endplate effect from the decksweeper mainsail. This coupled with the fully battened self-tacking jib, fully integrated wing mast and high aspect spinnaker the Akurra sail plan is a force to behold!!!
Of course if you don’t want the Decksweeper, the Akurra is available with a traditional mainsail and boom setup.
Control is the key
The Akurra Control systems put this speed machine firmly in the palm of your hand. The Goodall Design team races these boats every week, and we have a zero tolerance for something not working right, and this shows in the clear simple deck layout. Every line and cleat is exactly where you want for quick and easy control.
Standard fitout includes 16:1 cascading downhaul, 10:1 mainsheet and HARKEN running gear throughout. All this combines to give you ultimate control over your racing machine.
Don’t be left behind, the Akurra is waiting to bring your sailing to the next level.
