Dinghy - ULTIMATE AT-ANCHOR "TOY"

If you've ever found yourselves anchored in sheltered cove, awaiting the passing of a front, with nothing better to do than watch the wind and waves and wish you could take advantage of it, here's the best thing to have...if you really like to sail!

MiniCat 420 (Laura Dekker Version) for sale: $3,200 ($6,800 new). Purchased new in August of 2017, lightly used for two years aboard our 44' FP. Living under our bed for last two years, unused (It can't compete with my A-Cat, but my A-Cat would not fit on JADE)

Disassembled, the Minicat lives in two, custom six foot long by 1 foot square vinyl tote bags, each weighing approximately 45lbs. We stored the bags on a spare rack (bed) in an empty stateroom.

Build the boat easily on the tramp/foredeck and lift it into the water using the spin halyard. With a jib roller fuller and simple controls, it easily sails solo, with two adults or even a bunch of kids. Rechargeable inflator, foot inflator, sail bags, mast bag and rudder bag all included. Extra batten for head of sail and extra tiller extension included.

Pick it up on your way south this year and have yourselves a blast in even the heaviest winds! We are located in the Melbourne, FL, harbor.

Re: ULTIMATE AT-ANCHOR "TOY"

In Oz so not buying but could you strap a 2 or 4hp outboard on these?

Re: ULTIMATE AT-ANCHOR "TOY"

I believe there is an option from Minicat for an outboard mount to attach to the rear crossbeam. Pat

I hate to be picky, but isn't that a boat posted in "General Classifieds (no boats)"

I’d like to purchase this, please advise how I can arrange payment and do you have any suggestions for delivery to Stuart Florida?

The Minicat has been sold and is no longer available. I will ask to have the ad removed from the Forum. Pat
