The very small Mini-230 boat, which was designed by one Polish yacht builder Leszek Gonciarz, is only comparable in size to an optimist. Moreover, the latter is 5 kg heavier. And although from the outside it looks a little ridiculous and funny, in fact it is a full-fledged yacht.
Of course, the size of boats has always been measured and will be measured. And if some suffer from gigantomania, others, in turn, try to create something that would fit under everyone's armpit. Or, as in this case, on the roof of a car.
For bringing this project to life Honchazh was awarded the prize. Among other honors, the first regatta has already been held with the participation of these babies. A total of 15 boards were involved in the race. All participants were pleased with the result. They were captivated by the simplicity and availability of the "apparatus". The issue price is only 2,500 €.
The zest and genius of this yacht is in absolute and perfect minimalism. Its ease of transportation and dimensions are good news. Also, the yacht is quite stable. This was achieved through a profiled centerboard. Another advantage: thanks to the small draft, you can even walk on it on a shallow lake.
But the main advantage is that this yacht can be operated by people with disabilities. And for them yachting can finally turn from a dream into a reality.
