All-Rounder; ideal family boat and club racer
The Magno will appeal to all the family. She is user friendly from day one, the dynamic yet forgiving hull is married to an easily controlled rig that is prefect for less experienced sailors but will also give you that extra oomph on demand.
As with all Howlett designs, stability is reassuring and seasoned sailors will quickly appreciate the pedigree handling, impressive performance potential and high specification throughout.
And the furling jib also means you can transform the Magno to a powerful singlehander.
Magno is spacious and roomy enough for four
The Magno provides far more space than any other sailboat in it's price range. The spacious and comfortable cockpit has a secure and confident feel. Additional built-in buoyancy and a higher freeboard ensures that four people can enjoy perfect sailing without the boat taking on water. The high boom and gnav system makes for an even more roomy cockpit area. This clever hull design even allows you to remove the thwart seat from the centre of the cockpit to add even more space.
Magno is beautifully built and exceptionally tough
Topper International's unparalleled expertise in thermoplastics has meant that the very latest rapid advances in material technology have been fully harnessed to produce an incredibly strong, lightweight, stiff and durable hull. The Metalicene TRILAM hull moulding is a three layer sandwich construction with a tough outer skin to give exceptional impact strength and because of the foam core, the whole construction is lightweight and has a positive buoyancy. The TOPAZ-technique is the envy of the industry.
Magno keeps it simple. Simple to rig, launch, sail, recover and own
The boat is simplicity itself to rig and launch and the control systems are childs play. Lightweight and easy to handle ashore the boat is safe and stable afloat and comes complete with a user-friendly centreboard. The power source is a modern and easily handled rig and can even be reefed for less experienced crews or in high winds.
The Magno makes gennaker sailing accessible to virtually everyone. The gennaker system is supremely efficient and even young sailors can raise or lower the gennaker on a single line launch as smoothly as the professionals.
And the low maintenance hull means owning and looking after the Magno is a doddle too.
Magno is incredible value for money
The Magno represents incredible value for money retailing for significantly less than the average modern family 14 footers. The Magno utilises the latest thermoplastic production techniques resulting in a super tough low maintenance hull at a fraction of the cost of GRP. This is the key reason why the Topaz range retails at significantly less than you might expect.
