NEW BOATS FOR SALE – A VENDRE
In January 2009 a new production Mini 6.50 design, created by Owen Clarke Design and built in America, splashed the waters on Biscayne Bay off Coconut Grove, FL. The M65 presents a new and exciting sailboat for the US, Canadian and world market - while designed to meet all the technical and safety requirements of Classe Mini.
If you're interested in an affordable, high performance, trailer-sailer sailboat that you can dry sail, day sail, take off on for the weekend, a week, a month, or sail across hundreds or thousands of miles of ocean - and, if you're so inclined, race in the Mini Transat (4.300 nautical miles, solo, from France to Brazil), then have a look at the M65.
