The Boat

The 5O5 is a double-handed boat that incorporates a light weight, high performance hull design with a powerful sail plan and one trapeze.

The boat is unique in that it has outstanding performance in all conditions.

In light air it is quick and responsive, and in breeze it just goes faster.

Planing begins in 10 knots of wind.
