Nacra 5.2 is moving to the top of my short list. I thought about Wave (as used) after watching some YT videos about it. As I am a total beginner, I thought about starting with it and sailing it for a couple of seasons before jumping on something bigger like a Nacra 5.2. That was why I liked Weta...
Not that I would buy one, but I wonder your opinion about the new Nacra 500mk2 and 15.

You got me at cheap, but I've been having difficulty finding those good deals on beachcats. A Nacra is more or less same price as a Weta, used or new. Perhaps I am looking at the wrong places. Especially, if I can car top a beachcat on my truck, I will be saving even more $s.
