MiniCat 420 Features & Benefits
The MiniCat 310 is a boat that combines premium and lightweight materials that make it easy to carry on land and fast and efficient on the water. The 310 is the perfect boat for an adult or youngster to sail solo for a fun day on the water!
The jib and main sails on the MiniCat boats all have windows in them. This allows you to be more aware of your surroundings.
Even with the colorful sails, sometimes other boaters are not paying attention. These windows allow you to see 360° and be responsive to your surroundings.
Continuous Line Roller Furling Jib
Your MiniCat 310 models is equipped with a continuous line roller furler. This allows you to put away the jib sail, on either tack without any worry or possibility of a snag, clog, or line override that the single-line furlers are notorious for.
You can also store your jib furled (folded in half) to make boat set-up and take-down quicker and easier.
Fully Battened Square-top Mainsail
The square-top mainsail provides this beachcat with more than enough power to have a fun day on the water. Fully battened for superior sail shape, even in light winds.
The 420 can easily reach speeds up to 12 knots and some have even pushed their boat faster than 16 knots!
Powder Coated Lightweight Frame
MiniCats are built with lightweight aluminum frames that have been powder coated using techniques that are time tested and durable.
The rugged, long-lasting frame uses the lightweight and durable materials for both transport ease and sailing performance.
Small Pack-down for Easy Storage and Transport
The MiniCat 310 packs away into just ome easy-to-manage bag.
The boat is mostly pre-assembled in the bag, simply unroll, inflate, step the mast and go sailing!
These bags can be stored under your bed, in a closet or checked as luggage on an airplane. Call your airline for a quote on oversized luggage fees, they can vary by airline.
Optional wheeled storage bags are easy to transport and move around without heavy lifting.
The MiniCat 420 has a feature rich trampoline, complete with
-Plenty of places to hold on with reinforced handles in each corner.
-There are pockets for the halyards and even a place to clip drybags in a snag free pouch.
-There is a hiking strap long enough for at least 2 pairs of feet and bungee lacing at the base of the mast for stowing larger gear.
-There are also diagonal webbed straps sewn on the trampoline to provide extra grip.
Low Aspect Ratio Keels
The MiniCat 310 is equipped with long shallow keels under each hull which contribute to the MiniCat’s ease of use and great sailing characteristics.
The keels allow the 310 to be sailed in extremely shallow waters.
Only fly a hull when you want; the keels resist the rotation of the hulls making this boat harder to capsize than other beach cats!
The keels are set aft of the mast, which allows the 310 to tack much quicker than other hard hulled catamarans.
Heytex 5509 PVC
All MiniCats, including the MiniCat 420, have hulls made in Germany with Heytex 5509 PVC. This is top shelf PVC and has a longer life expectancy than 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!
