as far as I can tell:

 

Pogo - California

RG650 - S. America

Class Zero - was Spain - no website? cant find info

Tip Top - France, again unable to find info

 

Are there any other mini's manufactured in europe, does anyone have links for the Zero or Tip Top or know distributors in UK / France

 

Thanks


Andrew

I might have missed this - but i'd not seen anything on the Pogo 3 on the site - any ideas on when that might appear?

Don't forget the D2 built by Chantier Marée Haute in France.  I actually think this Pierre Rolland design is quite competitive with the Naciras.

Thanks totally forgot about the D2. The D2 just got a reconfigured mast to be more like the Naciras/

What's up with the Argo? That is a damn good looking series boat. Lombard mini cockpits are the best I've seen.

no Tiptop, no Zero anymore.

 

Pogo3, rumors, have not heard anything. Would be cool.

 

Argo, had some problems in the beginning, their marketing is very lowkey.

 

Argo, Dingo2 and importing RG or Pogo2 is more then enough, still a lot of 2hands to be first destroyed.

I bet you can order a Naus or one of the many other series boats that not really made it the last decade...

Regarding the pogo 3 there are some more information on the facbook page of "Pogo - Chantier Naval Structures", and they told me that the designer of the Pogo-3 is Guillaume Verdier.

The RG650 www.rg650.com has reached the series status and will be racing the MT as a series boat. 

Team Wichard 837 is located in Annapolis and will be display at the Annapolis Boat Show!!

 The boat has proved to be very fast and reliable and it is probably the best priced mini landed in the US!

 

Contact us for more details or visit our sites .... www.rg650europe.com or Facebook

Curious to know who the owners are of Structures now.

THey have a lot going on, and a step back to the minis is a bit surprising.

Thanks Moody :)

But we will see if there will be a P3 when it sails.
