Meet the MiniCat 420 Family


    The Instinct is the base model which is perfect for beginners.  It has a Dacron sail and does not have a boomed mainsail which sacrifices some performance to create a safer learning experience.   

    The Emotion is the perfect sports boat, for a more experience sailors.  It offers a true sporting experience for those that like to go fast, but also surprises with its versatility.  The main sail is made of transparent Monofilm and controlled by an aluminum boom.  This enables the optimal sail profile settings to achieve maximum performance and speed.

    The Evoque is for those that intend to race their boat with the intention of winning!  It uses a carbon bowsprit, boom and rudder instead of aluminum and fiberglass which decreases the weight of the boat.   The sail is made of Monofilm & Racing Polyester X-PLY line.  If you really want an advantage, consider the carbon mast which is an accessory.  

    The Laura Dekker Edition is top of the line! It has the same carbon fiber upgrades as the Evoque as well as an eye-catching carbon fiber Poly-X racing main sail and jib.  The newly designed trampoline has an embroidery of the Laura Dekker signature logo.   For those that do not know, Laura Dekker became the youngest person to circumnavigate the world.  She did so on a 12-meter bright red Kelch named "Guppy" at age 16.   A signed copy of this very inspirational young lady's book, "One Girl, One Dream" is included with every boat.

    Accessory Pro Tips


      The MiniCat 420 is the most customizable boat in this market segment with a range of accessories for all types of sailors! 

      Do you want to race?     Make sure you add a trapeze set, a replacement carbon mast, a Code Zero Rolling Genna, a Storm Sail and a traveler. 

      Are you a leisure sailor?     The additional front trampoline is the perfect spot to stow your beach towels, picnic basket and beer.  A set of neoprene shrouds make it little more comfortable when you are laying out on the trampoline and catching some sun, and the ladder makes it easy to get in and out of the boat when it’s time to take a dip.  

      Will your boat be stored outside?     You will definitely need a boat cover, a rudder cover and stands to protect the keel fins. 

      Are you launching from a car, RV, or camper?     You can carry the boat to the beach and inflate it with the included handpump. Or you could pick up a handheld high-volume inflator pump to quickly inflating the boat to around 1 psi. With this pump, you will still need to use the hand pump to completely fill the hulls. Or inflate the boat fully with a 12V automatic pump to inflate the boat and then roll it to the beach with a transport trolley. 

      Will you travel with your MiniCat?      Wheeled bags are a no brainer and a must for airports.  

      Are you sailing off shore or in spotty wind conditions?     It could be essential that you pickup a motor as an alternate propulsion method. Grab one of MiniCat's motor mount brackets to add an outboard motor to your setup.   You may also consider an electric drive system from the Torqeedo Travel Series.

      “Since the first time I saw a MiniCat being sailed (circa 2009) I was so impressed at how so much fun could be had from a sailing boat that you could carry in a bag.”

      -LAURA DEKKER YOUNGEST SAILOR TO SOLO-CIRCUMNAVIGATE THE WORLD


      “What does Great Lakes Watercraft Think?”

      We personally think the MiniCat 420 Laura Dekker Edition is the best bang-for-your-buck boat offered by MiniCat. It is very fast, easy to sail and can even be outfitted with an outboard for use as a tender or for when the wind dies down. The boat assembles in 20-30 minutes and can be stuffed in a hall closet when not in use. You are getting the best quality parts and with all that carbon fiber it has a sense of high tech about it.
