It is the smaller version of the Flying Tiger 10, designed to satisfy the high performance sailor while reducing the intimidation factor and is a very manageable package. National One Design Sailing Academy currently operates a fleet of 10 boats for its sail training and regatta operations. The Recreational Boating Standards implemented by Transport Canada prevent many boats from being compliant, the FT7.5 can easily meet these standards set. The FT7.5 is a fast, fun and affordable platform. It is the ideal boat for yacht club fleets, designed to satisfy the need of yacht clubs for a high performance boat that can be match, team, and fleet raced while providing a stable platform for teaching beginners. This makes the boat dynamic enough to hold corporate events and host high level competition. With an open cockpit over 4 meters in length it can carry a large crew and the control layout allows it to be sailed by a limited crew. The FT7.5 is constructed using infusion for the hull lay up and vacuum bagging for the deck and all interior bulkheads. It is built with a lifting keel that makes the boat easy to trailer or be stored on a yard dolly.
