Description

The Micro Magic Class is one of the largest and fastest growing in the world, with affiliated classes in over a dozen countries spread over three continents. Micro Magic kits are manufactured by Graupner of Germany and their design and basic look are pattered after single-handed trans-Atlantic boats popular in Europe called Mini 6.5's. The boat features an ABS hull and deck (which must be joined during assembly), carbon fiber spars and high qualty rigging hardware. While not a 'Ready-to-Run' kit, it can be assembled with common adhesives and epoxies by builders with novice skills. The class sails under the well-established International Micro Magic Rules, and is governed in the United States by the Micro Magic Class Owners Association.

Micro Magic class yachts can be sailed in a wide variety of wind conditions--from drifters to Force 5 winds utilizing smaller alternate sail rigs which are legal under the class rules. Their small size (21") and light weight (860 grams minimum) make Micro Magics extremely east to transport and sail. Despite their size, they sail as well if not better than many larger sailboats.
