nice, but in true north american style, rather heavy... 80 Kilos for a narrow, 16 foot boat?

Looks v.nice. A bit like a very expensive Musto Skiff. Got any contact details for the builder?

SA threads seem to suggest it's going to be similarly priced to the musto/700- can't see how that will be feasible once you pay gordon...

remains to be seen if it's just a flash in the pan compared to the other two principal classes that are building momentum.


I have no idea how they can think that will be built for the MPS price ... it's too big for a single hander - I bet they do a 2 person version.

Can you imagine dragging a 16 foot 80 kg hull up a slip way by yourself, especially when its all up sailing weight will be much heavier, after a hard days sailing? Would be a nightmare . Would be interesting if they did make it a double hander with a high aspect main sail and no jib. Can't see her fairing well agasinst the MPS comercially as it stands.

I wasn't really saying that 80KG was too heavy to be practical - more that it is heavier than it should be to go as fast as it looks....



I suppose we don't really know if the quoted 80kg is bare hull, or rig and foils too...

Mini Boss - ughg no ..

Anyway ... yes there are over 30 MPS's in Switzerland and almost 20 in Germany.

Getting close to ISAF International status now ...

I don't see how they can make the Voodoo thing the same weight as the MPS and 2 foot longer ... oh well, when they have finsihed the project we'll all see what the score is, until then there is only really one choice ...
