Check out this very cool sailboat that can be disassembled in a matter of minutes, stuffed back into it’s carrying bag, and thrown in the trunk of your car. The manufacturer claims that it can be assembled in less than 30 minutes, and is light enough to carry to edge of the water without the use of a vehicle. (Although, to be fair, it does sill weigh close to 90 pounds.)
The MiniCat consists of two inflatable floats, several sails, aluminum rods and an alloy mast, a rudder, keel fin and a trampoline, all of which can be put together without tools to create this small, agile sailing vessel for day trips on your favorite body of water. It can hold two people and some gear, with a maximum weight of about 530 pounds. The little vessel is only available in Europe for the moment though, and will set you back $4900. A small price to pay for a future America’s Cup Champion I’m sure.
