Originally called ROLAND 36.
The NACRA 36 was actually the first boat created with the North American Catamaran Racing Association (NACRA) in mind. A one-design fleet was intended.
When interest proved to be less than hoped for, a scaled down version was developed. (NACRA 5.2)
The NACRA 36 wa significantly re-designed in the mid-1990's for production in Australia.
