MiniCat Guppy Features & Benefits

The MiniCat Guppy is a combination of over a decade of experience and the idea of making sailing more accessible. The Guppy is one of the least expensive sailboats on the market and it packs a wallop in terms of value.

Easy Setup
The Guppy comes mostly pre-assembled right out of the bag Simply inflate the hulls, install the center bar and put up the mast, most motivated sailors can do this in about 10 minutes! Wheeled storage bag grants you the freedom to build your Guppy close to the water.

Keels
MiniCat offers the inflatable sailboats that use keels. This keeps the draft low, and makes sailing very simple with no pesky centerboards to get hung up on weeds or drag bottom in shallow areas. Guppy keels were designed by Tomas Bata University in the Czech Republic to be made out of 100% recycled plastic. Better for the environment, and they float!

Fully Battened Square-Top Mainsail
The square-top mainsail provides this little cat with more than enough power to have a fun day on the water. Fully battened with fiberglass battens provides great sail shape, even in light winds. Some Guppy sailors have reported surfing waves up to 12 knots, but average reaching speeds of 8 knots have been achieved.

Premium Hulls - Heytex 5509 PVC
All MiniCats, including the Guppy, have hulls made in Germany with Heytex 5509 PVC. This is top shelf PVC and has an extended life expectancy of typical boat PVC. This boat fabric is no different than other PVC with regards to repair. It is easily repairable by an amateur, so no more expensive boat yard repair bills!

Powdercoated Lightweight Aluminum Frames
MiniCats are built with lightweight aluminum frames that have been powder coated using techniques that are time tested and durable, even in saltwater! The rugged, long-lasting frame uses the lightest weight materials for both transport ease and sailing performance.

Boomless Mainsail
The Guppy’s boomless main design provides for worry-free sailing with children or novice sailors. No worries about getting bonked in the head by a hard boom.

Carbon Fiber, Unstayed Mast
The new-for-2023 MiniCat Guppy features a brand first unstayed carbon fiber mast. After many hours of testing, the Red Beard Team absolutely LOVES this feature!

The mast is flexible allowing for comfortable sailing in high winds, but is very simple to manage and provides plenty of power on light wind days.

Removing the need to connect wires further speeds up the boat assembly process.

Ergonomic Trampoline
The Guppy’s trampoline has plenty of handles and tiedown points so you can stash gear to bring along. There are also two sets of hiking straps so any sailor, short or tall, can comfortably and easily hike out.

Fun for Kids & Adults
The Guppy is a fantastic value and is a great way for parents or grandparents to teach sailing to small children. Because the Guppy is stable and lightweight, it can even be be sailed solo by kids without being overpowered. Some customers have even had their own regattas by buying multiple Guppys and match racing them.
