    Optional Rolling sail GENNA

    An additional ultra-light, large, balloon-like triangular-shaped sail in the ‘Code-Zero’ style significantly improves performance when sailing not only on the tailwind but also on the crosswind and even slightly against the wind.

    Its construction is based on the ‘Code Zero’ type of sails, and it comes equipped with a furler. A snuffer is not required, as it can be rolled back the same way as the Jib. This new rolling sail Genna can also be used with the earlier MiniCat models (M420 and M460).

DESIGN

FRAME & DECK

The MiniCat 420 frame, to which the floats attach, is produced from light-weight aluminium and the frame parts are powder coated. The trampoline is produced from high strength woven plastic fabric. The frame is attached to the floats by means of welded-on ‘flags’, which are inserted into the pockets on the floats.

FLOATS

The MiniCat 420 is equipped with two inflatable floats 4.2m length and 45 cm diameters. The floats are made of reinforced Heytex 5509, highly resistant to abrasion and very hard wearing. This material and production technology was adopted from the production of ‘white-water’ rafts. The floats are single-chamber with a combined load capacity of 530 kg.

KEEL FIN

To fully enjoy your sailing you must confidently control your boat. It is imperative to minimize ‘side-sail’, especially when sailing against the wind. To achieve this keel fins were designed to attach under each float. Their design and shape gives excellent performance yet still allows the boat to be sailed in very shallow water without the risk of damage.

MAST

The mast consists of three sections of equal length, slotted together. The length of the assembled mast is 5.05 m. The mast is from alloy tubing and has a groove for the sail attachment. This construction ensures high rigidity and strength for ultimate safety, performance and enjoyment.

SAIL

The MiniCat 420 is equipped with a main sail and a jib. The total area of the sails is 9.7 sqm (main sail 6.5 sqm, jib 3.2 sqm). The material ‘Dimension Polyant’ is used with a surface density of 175 – 240 g/m. The mail sail of the 420 Emotion and Evoque is made of a transparent Sport MonoFilm. Both the main sail and the jib have transparent windows to ensure better visibility and security while sailing.

RUDDER

MiniCat 420 is fitted with one rudder in the craft centreline, attached to the frame. The automatic cleat will unlock the rudder rope in case the boat runs aground, thus protecting it from damage. The design of the rudder allows it to be raised at a 90 degree angle, so at the shore or in very shallow water there is no danger of damage. The rudder can be locked in both positions, raised or lowered. The tiller arm is jointed allowing full 360 degree movement. The rudder on 420 Instinct and Emotion is made of aluminium, on 420 Evoque, 420 Laura Dekker and 420 15th Anniversary is made of Carbon Fibre.

FITTINGS

Fittings from the companies Ronstan, Seasure, Clamcleat and Suchomel are used throughout the MiniCat. All spare parts and accessories are available. See our SPARE PARTS & ACCESSORIES CATALOGUE.
