The world's favorite portable sailboat
The world's favorite portable sailboat
I wanted freedom, open air and adventure.
I found it on the sea.
MiniCat ranges in weight from 35kg/77lbs to 58kg/127lbs depending on the model. This means you can get better speed and performance using less sail area. This also means the MiniCat is easier to right than traditional rigid catamarans. The ultra-light weight also makes getting the boat into and out of the water alot easier than comparable boats. All of this translates into more fun on the water with alot less hassle.
The MiniCat can hold between 240kg/530lbs and 450kg/992lbs depending on the model. You can sail the MiniCat solo or with friends, family and loved ones. It is very safe and stable so you do not have to be an expert to sail the MiniCat either.
The MiniCat packs into 1, 2 or 3 duffle bags depending on the model and will fit in your trunk, on your roof rack, on a yacht, in your RV, we even have customers who bring their MiniCat to the beach using their bicycle or ATV. Since it is so portable you can take the MiniCat anywhere the wind is. You don't have to worry about a trailer and a dock/boat launch. you can launch it from virtually anywhere. Can you imagine taking your MiniCat with you on your next trip down south? Ultimately this means you will get alot more use out of your boat making the MiniCat a great long term investment.
The MiniCat is built using the same materials as rescue boats. It can land on a beach or rocks and is super durable, unlike a traditional fiberglass boat which will easily be ripped open when scraped on rocks. The Aluminum structure and sails are top quality meaning the MiniCat will last for many years and still deliver a great sailing experience. In the unlikely event that the hulls do get damaged repairs are as simple as gluing on a patch. Fiberglass and Carbon fiber boats are difficult and costly to repair and while rotomoulded boats are tough they are heavy and virtually unfix able.
The MiniCat will sail in waves and flat water. Its ultra light design makes it nimble and agile and easy to right in case you get overturned in the surf. The MiniCat has integrated hiking straps so you can fly a hull with ease and maintain control during windier days. You can even purchase an optional trapeze kit so you can harness in and stand out on the hull for some real thrills and excitement during high wind days!
The soft trampoline and inflatable hulls makes the MiniCat a luxurious ride. You will not end up covered in bruises like you would a fibre glass sail boat. But for even more comfort you can purchase inflatable seats that integrate into the hull design allowing you to sail longer and with less fatigue.
No wind, no problem. You can purchase an optional motor mount for the MiniCat which will let you attach a gas or electric motor. You can even sail with the motor for the ultimate go anywhere experience. Since the MiniCat holds so much weight you can load it up with your tent and camping gear and sail to a remote destination for a night under the stars.
The MiniCat is designed and built in the EU using only the finest quality materials and construction methods. This is not a mass produced cheap quality craft but rather a high performance, high quality sailing vessel. You will notice all the little touches from high quality fittings such as Ronstan or ClamCleat to integrated Jib Furlers on select models.
Compare MiniCat to the world renowned Hobie 16 which weights 145kg/320lbs and has a listed max Capacity of 362kg/800lbs - although many people will tell you the real sailing max capacity is alot less. The Hobie is a great sail boat. The MiniCat is the next generation. Lighter, easier, tougher more diverse and less hassle.
With MiniCat you do not need a trailer to tow the boat or a slip to store the boat which makes it more cost effective than a traditional rigid hull boat. You also store the boat indoors in very little space adding to the boats longecity and overall value.
MiniCat is a revolutionary design in sailboat technology. By combining the best materials with inflatable hulls the MiniCat is able to be ultra-light and ultra portable - you do not need to have alot of space to store a sail boat or a trailer to keep it on and transport it with.
