BUSTER MINI AND MINI SPORT
The Buster Mini is a full aluminium family boat, that can be rowed or driven by outboard engine. Depending on your choice, you can equip it with electrical or combustion engine or alternatively oars. As it only weighs 100 kg, it can easily be handled ashore. Winter haulout is a breeze as you can turn it upside down and leave it for the dark, cold season. Being unsinkable it is a safe choice.
The Buster Mini is an excellent choice for the summer cottage, for fishing, small transportations or as a tender to a bigger boat. Rain doesn’t impede it, because the Easy Bail (pat.) bailer empties the boat both ashore and under way. Due to it’s full aluminium construction, the Buster Mini does not require much in terms of maintenance. The occasional wash with fresh water is enough. Compared to a GRP boat, the Buster Mini is truly a Carefree Choice!
Though the Buster Mini is the smallest boat in the range, it can carry three passengers with luggage in it’s surprisingly spacious interior. Three upholstered seats guarantee comfortable trips even when going slow. The Buster Mini is the only boat in the range specifically designed with rowing in mind. It can be carried by two adults, and for longer trips it can be trailed behind a small car on a trailer w/o brakes (local regulations and applicable laws to be followed).
For the 2018 season we introduced the brand new Mini Sport. This new model is a great example of how fun on the water does not have to cost you an arm and a leg. Mini Sport is based on the Buster Mini hull – with a small steering console. With the higher maximum engine power rating of 10 hp, you will discover that this is quite the small sports boat. With the new console, the Buster Mini Sport is perfectly suited for short commuting or, equally well as the first “real” powerboat for younger family members. With the 9,9hp Yamaha outboard you will easily reach maximum speeds over 20 knots.
Considering that this is a small boat registered for three persons, the Mini Sport is actually quite roomy and has reasonable space for loading. Even with the console, the boat only weighs 115kg, and just as the original Mini it can be hauled out by two adults.The carefree and durable aluminium hull is virtually maintenance free, and the boat can be left at the summer cottage awaiting new adventures. The optional harbour cover keeps the boat dry and clean when you leave it. Long transports are effortless and undramatic on a trailer without brakes behind a regular car.
