The Minibee 6.5 is a sailing boat 100% manufactured and designed in Sri Lanka. It is built under a spin off of the Building A Future foundation, Solar Impulse. The small keelboat is the perfect size for a private trip with friends, to learn sailing quickly or for an exciting regatta.
The first Minibee 6.5, then still a cabin version, was built in 2008. One boat stayed in Sri Lanka, the other ones were exported to Europe. In 2010 the first Minibee 6.5 OPEN was built. In this version the deck layout has been optimized for sailing in a tropical climate.
With its perfect outline and complete set of sails you discover a new sensation of gliding and freedom. The simplified design allows fast learning while preserving each important setting. You quickly understand how to use a sailing boat and will be able to move to larger vessels.
