Laura Dekker on a MiniCat

Record-Breaking World Sailor Laura Dekker, the world famous Dutch/New Zealand sailor who at 16 became the youngest person to circumnavigate the world and make headlines worldwide, has long been a big fan of MiniCat.

“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.”

We are proud to collaborate with Laura on the MiniCat 420 Laura Dekker Ltd Edition. The design is based on our best-selling MiniCat 420 Evoque, with usage of carbon fiber items, matte finish of the frame, double coloured mast, fantastic eye catching design of sail & jib and newly designed trampoline with an embroidered Laura Dekker logo.
