“I just bought and enjoyed for a small period of time up to now (August 2016) the 420 evoque and there are two aspects I’d like to share:
– The boat is more than a beach toy. The structure is perfect and solid; a simple construction but of real high quality. Although the first attempt to assembly takes really more than the promised 30 min, after some practice (2 or 3 times) when you finally see and understand all connections, details and the mistakes that you need to avoid (especially when raising the mast), the preparation of the boat becomes really easy. The sailing is perfect and can give you a range of emotions between pure fun and challenging sailing (depending on the winds that you will sail). It seems like that the boat itself includes a learning curve which makes it even more interesting and creates an anticipation feeling to sail again and again. Although very simple to handle, gives you the opportunity to play and start testing limits (sail in stronger winds, on one float etc). It can be a boat for beginners (can be really fast though even with a small breeze) up to a more challenging and demanding game that you can play with for hours and hours.
– The team behind the boat is composed by real professionals who are more than interested to satisfy their client. The boat initially received (I purchased a demo boat at a discount) had a fault on one of the floats, which I only identified when tried to assembly during vacations far from home in Athens. Contacted the team and explained the problem; they reacted fast and sent me a replacement float (as part of the boat ‘s guarantee) within 4 days directly at the place of out vacations (far from Athens, the initial place of receipt). A great thanks to Petra and the team for their understanding, assistance and quick reactions.
