MiniCat 460

$ 8,950.00

Performs as good as it looks.

The MiniCat 460 is the largest and fastest in the MiniCat lineup. It fits a wide range of functionality with the ability to mount an outboard and a total weight capacity of 1,234 pounds! This is a great family sailboat, with a focus on speed and performance. It's also a great day sailor when you want to carry more weight and make better speed, especially in light winds. This boat turns into an absolute rocket ship when put into capable hands. The MiniCat 460 is a great value in performance beach cats.

The MiniCat 460 comes in 2 different trim levels: Esprit and Elite. All 460 models include a continuous line jib furler, traveller, and boomless mainsail. You can learn more about each trim level below.

 

MiniCat 460 Esprit

The 460 Esprit is a fantastically fast and efficient sailboat. Its mast is one section taller than the 420 mast and has a longer waterline which translates to a faster boat in all conditions.

-----

MiniCat 460 Elite

The 460 Elite is everything the 460 Esprit aspires to be, but with carbon fiber bits for a more performance aesthetic. Don’t be fooled, the carbon mast isn’t just for looks; the carbon mast is much easier to step when assembling the boat, and it is much less weight aloft than the aluminum mast which allows you to carry full sails in stronger winds without a worry of capsizing.

MiniCat 460 Features & Benefits

The MiniCat 460 is a boat that combines premium and lightweight materials that allow you to spend time on the water without the need for a slip or trailer! This travel ready sailboat is perfect for fast solo sailing as well a safe and family friendly daysailer.

Dyneema Shrouds

Dyneema Shrouds - Standard

Dyneema cordage is stronger than steel and soft on the hands. Dyneema also weighs less than steel. Less weight aloft = faster!

Believe it or not, but these Dyneema shrouds will even stretch less under tension than stainless steel wire.

This cordage is easier to stow (for faster take-down and setup of the boat).

Mast Spreader

Spreaders

MiniCat has included spreaders on the mast of the 460. This is a major upgrade to rig tension of the boat.

These upgraded spreaders will increase the available power on MiniCat's largest and most powerful model.

Tilting Mast Step

Tilt-Up Mast Step

A new option for 2024, a tilt up mast step will greatly reduce the stress and physicality of stepping the 460.

The 460 mast is one whole section longer than the 420 mast, making it 25% heavier.

This is a welcome upgrade that will allow you to buy the faster boat without signing up for a sore back while trying to step the mast.

Windowed Sails

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.

Jib Travelers

Jib Travelers

Jib travelers are unique on an infaltable catamaran! These are a major upgrade allowing for more optimal sheeting angles of your jib.

This means the MiniCat 460 will point much higher and be faster on more points of sail than the 420 and even competitor's sailboats!

square top 460.jpeg__PID:3a7d4f6f-d904-48a9-9321-5302d202bc23

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 460 can easily reach speeds up to 18+ knots and some have even pushed their boat faster than 20 knots!

heytex 460.jpeg__PID:1b360968-d983-416f-8ae0-cf2b035630bf

Heytex 5509 PVC

All MiniCats, including the MiniCat 460, 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!

MiniCat now covers their hulls with a 7-year warranty!

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.

Jib Halyard Tensioner

Jib Halyard Tensioner - Standard

The MiniCat 460 includes a jib halyard tensioner as standard equipment.

This tensioner will allow you to increase your rig and jib luff tension significantly allowing for better pointing angles and better sail control.

LAR Keels 460.jpeg__PID:31df6c50-b27e-446c-9a89-3ba463aa5127

Low Aspect Ratio Keels

The MiniCat 460 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 460 to be sailed in very 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 460 to tack much quicker than other hard hulled catamarans.

Small Pack-down for Easy Storage and Transport

The MiniCat 460 packs away into three easy-to-manage bags. These bags are well-organized to keep things from getting damaged in storage.The MiniCat bags and packaway are better than other portable boats on the market.

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.

Additional Equipment

MiniCat has a comprehensive catalog of accessories for their boats. From front trampolines to motor mounts and even a gennaker, there is a way to spice up your next adventure!

$ 1,450.00

Three reasons you need ePropulsion for your boat: Clean, Easy, Quiet.

With a seamlessly attachable lithium battery and outstanding efficiency, the Spirit 1.0 Plus is a great alternative to rowing or a noisy gas outboard. The Spirit 1.0 Plus can do everything a 3 HP outboard motor can, but is lighter, cleaner, quieter, and more convenient.

Easily push a dinghy to and from shore or us it to reliably and efficiently dock small to medium racing sailboats. When needed, the large prop provides more low RPM thrust than its equivalent gas outboard. 

ePropulsion has mastered the direct drive motor. The only noise this motor makes is the sound of the boat's hull passing through the water, it is literally quieter than a whisper (no high pitched whine like other motors on the market).

Note: Because many customers choose to purchase multiple batteries, the Spirit 1.0 Plus does not include a battery pack. Be sure to add one or more to your cart below.

Package Includes:

ePropulsion Spirit 1.0 Plus Long Shaft, integrated tiller, on-board computer, GPS-based range calculation, Motor Mount, and 2x emergency magnetic stop key.
