The MiniCat 420 is being upgraded in 2018! The 420 Easy will be discontinued and moving forward all 420 models will have a complete facelift and a handful of technical changes in improve performance, including:
- new design of the sail and jib
- new float design
- new bag design
- an adjusted trampoline
- change in shape and position of the keel fins
- improved frame that will be smoother and without the pealing effect
