BOB WALKER, NY, USA
“I Love My MiniCat 420. I have sailed a SuperCat 17′ for over 30 years and found it heart braking to sell it. I needed a boat that would be less expensive to keep, easy to store and transport as well as fun to sail. Looking on the internet I found a number of inflatable catamarans to choose from and I began to compare cost and features. Some were not more than toys and some were too big for my needs.
I came upon the MiniCat 420 and found it’s quality design and construction plus it’s hardware and rigging to be a serious sailboat. The price was competitive with other boats but I was not sure about shipping to the USA as well as parts and service. I found a dealer in Budapest who had in stock a display model that was a year old that had never been sailed for a good price and I bought it.
The dealer was also a 420 owner and experienced sailer who was very helpful and knowledgeable. When it arrived there was a minor rigging error from the factory that was replaced right away.
I love the way it sails and how easy it is to assemble and store.
Most of the time I sail single handed but it is comfortable for two people.
MiniCat is a wonderful boat and the company is serious about customer care. I couldn’t ask for more.”

“The MiniCat is a little beast. I own a 420 Emotion and never had so much fun with a small boat. It sails perfectly in 2-4 knots winds (to the annoyment of my KiteSurfer friends who have to sit and watch from the beach) and handles itself well in winds up to 20 knots (that requires some sailing skills, due to it’s low weight, minuscule fins and generous sail area). But then again, if you pull this off, the KiteSurfer friends are getting double-annoyed Plus, it launches from the beach single-handedly. All-in-all, if you like sailing, there is no excuse not to own one .”

“With virtually no overheads, such as mooring fees or the cost of a trailer, this is a very cheap way of owning a small boat. Small enough to fit in a large deck locker or possibly below a bunk, the MiniCat would also be a fun addition aboard any cruising yacht. With the ability to sail in as little as 30cm of water it has the potential to offer a platform for exploring remote areas of shallow coastline without disrupting the environment.”
PAUL KLABOST, Spain
“….what a great boat, I have my MiniCat at my flat in Spain, I keep it in the cupboard and can now sail even when I’m only there for a couple of days. I’m really surprised how responsive it is to sail and what fun it is… just what I was looking for, but never knew existed! Thanks for your help and the prompt delivery…”
