The Orca 280 is the sporty version of the Orca 280 3.9, with even more attention paid to the sailing characteristics. The main change concerns the sail, which has been enlarged to 4.8 m². This entailed a longer, 4-piece mast, which was also braced with dyneema shrouds, which further improved the sailing characteristics due to the greater stiffness.
Like all Orcas, the hull is completely welded. The high-pressure floor is integrated in the hull, so no loose parts (wood or inflatable) need to be installed during the assembly, which makes assembling quick and simple.
Just like the Orca 3.9, inflated and ready to sail in about 20 minutes from your car, camper, sailing or motor yacht. There are also standard lifting eyes available so that the boat can also be used from the davits.
The Orca 280 4.8 is supplied complete ready to sail in two bags, you only need to add water!
Of course, the necessary accessories are available, such as various electric pumps, a top cover, transport wheels, etc. You will find them on our accessories page.
Should something break or be lost during use, under spares you will find almost all parts, where necessary with a manual for assembly.
