We discuss boosts in a deformed Minkowski space, i.e. a four-dimensional space-time with metric coefficients depending on non-metric coordinates (in particular on the energy). The general form of a boost in an arbitrary direction is derived in the case of space anisotropy. Two maximal 3-vector velocities are mathematically possible, an isotropic and an anisotropic one. However, only the anisotropic velocity has physical meaning, being invariant indeed under deformed boosts.
