FRAME & DECK
The MiniCat 460 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.
The MiniCat 460 is equipped with two inflatable floats 4.6 m length and 49 cm diameter. 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 550 kg.
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.
The mast consists of three sections of equal length, slotted together. The length of the assembled mast is 6.10 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.
The MiniCat 460 is equipped with a main sail and a jib. The total area of the sails is 11,5 sqm (main sail 8,0 sqm, jib 3.5 sqm). The material ‘Racing PolyesterX-PLY Line’ is used for the main sail and the jib is made of “Polyester Dakron”. Both the main sail and jib have transparent windows to ensure better visibility and security while sailing. The 460 Esprit can be equipped with optional Gennaker.
MiniCat 460 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.
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.
