Who we are
16 years ago a young enthusiastic Czech sailor had an idea to create a boat that would be easy to transport, would be affordable for wider public and would still give its users a great experience of sailing. He wanted to create a real boat, not a toy!! It took him 2 years and hundreds of test sailing sessions from the prototype to the first real boat but it was worth it.
Now, 16 years later he can say he created a unique product that appeals to many sailing enthusiasts and is sold all over the world. His name is Martin Horak and he is the designer and the owner of the world-wide patent and the MiniCat brand.
MiniCat has quickly become the best boat in its category and with the choice of models and colours, cool designs and wide range of accessories puts all its competitors in the shade. MiniCat has truly become 'the world's favorite portable sailboat'.
From the very beginning Martin Horak partnered with Moravian Exports, s.r.o. (trading as MiniCat Worldwide) who from the first production became the exclusive worldwide distributor for MiniCat boats. MiniCat Worldwide has built MiniCat into a renowned international brand and goes from strength to strength with annual sales of over 500 boats. There are 1,000's of MiniCats sailing in all corners of the world.
There is about 20 exclusive distributors and dealers around the world offering MiniCat and the boat can be seen sailing in countries as far as the UK, USA, Australia, Japan, Caribbean and all European countries.
MiniCat is a fantastic piece of design and engineering that is designed and solely manufactured in the Czech Republic, at the heart of the EU.
All components and fittings used in manufacturing MiniCat are either made directly in the Czech Republic or sourced from a world class sailing manufacturers such as RONSTAN, SEASURE, CLAMCLEAT, SUCHOMEL etc.
Want to take your own small sailing catamaran on holidays? Want to have some fun sailing at the weekend, but don’t have space for your own boat?
It’s so simple – from being stored in your cupboard, just load it in the car. One, two or three bags – depending on the model, weighing from just 24 kg – it is MiniCat, the unique portable boat.
This is a small and light, but a full-bodied boat – a sailing catamaran with inflatable floats.
With excellent sailing characteristics and simple control, MiniCat catamaran is the best small sailboat for beginners, but the larger models also appeal to older experienced sailors. Despite MiniCat’s ultra-light weight and simplicity, major emphasis has been given to the quality and strength of the materials used during production.
