Last month, FD Yachts launched FD Future serial of Youth boats: FD Future, FD Future X and FD Future 6.8 in the North American markets by attending the National Sailing Programs Symposium (NSPS) event organized by US Sailing.

It was an amazing event held in the DeSoto Hotel and Savannah Yacht Club, Georgia with many sailing program directors, head instructors and distributors/agents test sailing the FD Future series of youth boats. The fleet was met with overwhelming enthusiasm and passionate feedback on their full functionality and modern design combined with simplicity and high performance.

FD Yachts was fortunate to speak to Mr. Richard Jepsen, Board President US Sailing who said

"As I watched the FD boats at the National Sailing Programs Symposium boat demonstration day and talked to the program directors and head instructors who tested them, I'm very confident we've added a great new portfolio of training and club boats to our US clubs and public access program community. I wish FD Yachts the best of luck as they help to diversify the offerings to our beloved sail training community."

FD Yachts is looking forward to demonstrating the FD Future series of youth boats during the US Youth Sailing Championships.

"We welcome further discussions on distribution and sales in the US market and beyond, we look forward to joining hands with future partners with a shared value in entrepreneurship, innovation and passion for performance! Thank you for US Sailing's great support and it was a beautiful event!"

commented Ms. Carren Shi Co-Founder and Co-Owner of FD Yachts.

FD Future has a Swiss modern design by VMG Yacht Design, built with Dutch technology and craftsmanship from China. She is the ideal PE boat choice for sailing schools to conduct sail training for both youth and adults. She is equipped with three sails, mainsail, jib and spinnaker, and can be sailed both single handed and double handed. In addition, she has a wide cockpit and can easily accommodate 2-3 youths onboard and is very stable. She is also zero-sailing experience friendly and a perfect choice of boat for conducting one on one sailing training. FD Future can also be positioned as a national and international One Design Class competition boat model.

FD Future X is a 100% double handed PE boat with three sails and significantly increased sails area of nearly 17 m2, the ideal next step boat for the FD Future sailors. FD Future 6.8 is with much bigger mainsail of 6.8m2, with options for jib and spinnaker. It is a fun choice for both adults and experienced youth sailors.
