Find the right MiniCat portable sailboat for your next adventure.

MiniCat has dedicated itself to creating portable sailboats that don't sacrifice performance for portability. MiniCats are the lightest weight sailboats on the market. The unrivaled SA/D (Sail Area to Displacement) ratio means these boats will move in any amount of wind. Because the sailors outweigh the boat, MiniCats like to sail flat, but can fly a hull when desired.

MiniCat Solo
Sailing Sailboats

Taking a sailboat out solo can be a daunting task. It gets easier with experience, but you want a boat that is stable and simple. MiniCats are fast, stable, and nimble—three things paramount to a day out on the water—making this the perfect solution for solo sailors whether seasoned or new. Because the MiniCat boats are so lightweight, they are thrilling and very nimble, especially with only one sailor aboard. You can trim your weight placement to further change the sailing characteristics, like moving weight inboard to fly a hull in light winds.

MINICAT

10+ YEARS IN THE MAKING.

Who We Are

MiniCat portable sailboats are a design and engineering marvel that are solely manufactured in the Czech Republic, EU. Their exclusive factory is equipped with the latest technologies and all of their boats are held to a rigorous quality control process before they are shipped.

Thirteen years ago a young enthusiastic Czech sailor, Matin Horak, had an idea to create a sailboat that would be easy to transport, would be affordable, and would be able to be sailed by both new and experienced sailors alike.

 

The MiniCat Story

Fueled with this idea and passion, Martin would begin to design and prototype his first iterations of this portable sailboat. After two years of testing, MiniCat was ready to hit the market. Thirteen years later, it’s sold all over the world and is still considered to be best in its class—selling over 200 boats a year. MiniCat is sold only through 20 distributors worldwide with Red Beard Sailing being one of them.

Our close relationship with the manufacturer has awarded us the privilege of being able to carry our own Red Beard Exclusive model, the MiniCat 420 Carbon.

Laura Dekker x MiniCat

Record-Breaking World Sailor Laura Dekker, who at 16 became the youngest person to circumnavigate the world and make international headlines, has long been a big fan of MiniCat. The boat brand collaborated with Laura on the MiniCat 420 Laura Dekker Ltd Edition. It’s design is based on best-selling MiniCat 420 Evoque, with usage of carbon fiber items, matte finish of the frame, double colored mast, fantastic eye catching design of sail and jib, and newly designed trampoline with an embroidered Laura Dekker logo.
 

Happy Cat Story Image

Laura said, “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…I have seen and sailed numerous inflatable catamarans and this one really stands above them all.”
