Class 5 Land Yachts
First appearing in the early 1980s Class 5 are one of the smaller competitive designs recognised by the sports international governing body. They are designed and made to a rigid specification. Modern Class 5s have a tubular steel chassis, aluminium axles and wheels, and a glass fibre or carbon/kevlar composite fuselage. Precise tuning and alignment as well as good construction techniques are essential to make use of a Class 5 yacht's potential.
