Topaz TAZ is Super Simple
It's obvious why thousands choose the Topaz TAZ to introduce newcomers to the sport of sailing. She is simple, fun and totally cool. At just 40kgs TAZ is easy to handle afloat and ashore, even for the smallest child. Total novice sailors are instantly at ease in the TAZ. She inspires confidence and within literally minutes, newcomers have already mastered the basics and are feeling comfortable and at home on the water.
Topaz TAZ is Safe, Stable and Spacious
The TAZ hull offers outstanding stability and masses of built in buoyancy ensures that up to two sailors can enjoy perfect handling without the boat taking on water over the transom or the bow nose-diving (unlike some other designs!) The TAZ feels far bigger than you might imagine. With its uncluttered and curvaceous self draining cockpit plus a nice high boom the TAZ is extremely roomy and comfortable for an adult and a child or two - three small children.
Topaz TAZ has 2 sails for up to 2 crew
The TAZ has a simple main and jib for two up sailing or can be sailed singlehanded. The deceptively spacious cockpit area has just as much space and capacity as more expensive models. A child as light as 30kgs can handle the TAZ. On the other hand, the maximum capacity is up to 150kgs allowing an adult an child to sail together comfortably.
Topaz 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.
Topaz is the best value Beginners Sailboat ever
'Possibly the most affordable sail trainer ever' YACHTS & YACHTING Independent Test review.
The Topaz utilises the latest thermoplastic production techniques resulting in a super tough low maintenance hull at a fraction of the cost of GRP. Therefore, the TAZ retails at significantly less than you might expect.
TAZ is now sailed in a rapidly growing number of sailing schools in the UK and abroad. The feedback from schools and families has been fantastic. They all recognise that the fun-factor of the boat is maximised because it is tailor made for youngsters in terms of size, weight and rig option. And they love the value for money the TAZ represents.
