If you click to here, there are crew and weight limits.

If you don't mind, why do you ask?

I'm just wondering, i might buy one after a few seasons sailing my H16 and i might get it with a jib and spinacher kit so it would be nice to have some crew to help me out.

The FXone handles two people really well. With two people and just a mainsail going to weather its a bit of a dog unless its blowing pretty good. The new jibs are fully battened too.
The FXone is a really sweet boat, downside is nobody races them.


Thanks for the promo JJ

The FX will definitely handle 2! I doubt you and any crew will match weight with what I regularly sail with. The beauty of the FX is its centrally-located, long daggerboards. It tacks beautifully regardless of the weight or wind conditions. You'll love the boat, but have to sail with the 17's or 20's if you want someone to compete with. I'm probably the only one for 500 miles. Have a good time!

Three people on the windward hull (@475lbs) flying the hull in about 12knots with main sail only, no problem! Knew a couple guys that raced at the 400lb mark in a high wind area, they won a lot. Plenty of sail area and flotation on the FX One. The nastier the water the better, you'll blow through the chop with the wave piercing hulls while others are going from crest to trough. Have fun!
