How much does a 420 sailboat cost?
A brand new 420 ready to sail costs approximately EUR5500 – 6000, making the boat an extremely affordable choice. About 350 boats are built per year, with 1850 boats built over the past 5 years. In 2020, the International 420 Class celebrated its 60th Anniversary.
How fast can a 420 sailboat go?
Top 420 skippers find speeds of 10-12 knots extremely hard to achieve, and even harder to sustain. The reason it feels so much faster than that is the crap hull and foil shape of boat boats, which makes them extremely squirrely at anything significantly above hull speed.
