Broker's Comments

I don’t think many people will be looking to buy a Mini Transat because of her luxurious accommodation; the word ‘Spartan’ comes to mind. Yes, there is space to bed down under the cockpit, but no galley, heads or a conventional nav station. Going fast is what this pocket rocket is all about: maximum sail-plan packed into a very modest overall length, and the purpose of most of the space inside is to contain some of the kit that makes her go fast – sails, the gear that cants the keel, and so on. The cockpit is a masterpiece of ergonomics. All the sail controls fall to hand, together with the gear that works the dagger-board and the canting keel. It’s not that often that an out-and-out flying machine like this comes on the market, so she’s unlikely to be hanging around, in any sense of the phrase.
