Made in the same spirit as the popular Open 5.70, the Open 5.00 is fast, easy to handle and exciting to sail.
The architect’s and designer’s goal for this scaled down state-of-the-art sportboat is to provide a product even easier to sail and handle, at a cost that won’t break the bank. While the 5.00 is an amazing one-design racer, it is also geared towards simply day sailing for fun with friends.
The new series 5.00 benefits from the active and dynamic Class Association, www.open500.org. The class’ objective being to bring together those who are looking to indulge their passion of sailing without the complications of budget, large crews, water depth or port anchorage.
