2008 Mini Transat 650

Buford, Georgia

2008 MIni Transat 650 One Design

Price Reduced, Motivated Seller

Many Sails, Well-Equipped for Racing, 6 HP Outboard and Double Axle Trailer 

This is a one-owner boat, custom ordered, in very good condition. It was very lightly dry-sailed in fresh water most of its life. Hundreds of them race around Europe. They are light and trailerable even behind smaller vehicles. They are very fast, easily planning, with maximum speeds of production division boats around 16-18 knots. The inside was always constantly air-conditioned during storage, zero mildew. The boat was never raced, never chartered. It is built like a tank, but very light at the same time. It is ready to be towed anywhere, dropped into water and sailed to the other side of an ocean if you wish, club -raced on your local lake, or just enjoyed as a very fast although spartan grand-cruising boat. Just add food, water, enthusiasm, and some personal safety equipment.

Class Information

Every other year about 100 small single-handed racing boats fight for the first place in the Atlantic- crossing race from France to Caribbean. They are known as Mini 650 Transat class. Hundreds of them race around Europe. They are light and trailerable even behind smaller vehicles. They are very fast, easily planning, with maximum speeds of production division boats around 16-18 knots. Tip Top is a production division Mini 650, a little less extreme and a lot less costly than pure racing machines of the prototype division. Prototype division boats achieve speeds of 25+ knots.
