Topaz 14 Cat Sailing Dinghy

The Topaz 14 has been designed by two of the most legendary Olympic CAT sailors ever. Any Catamaran that Yves Loday and Rob White have been involved with is going to be seriously FAST. And the Topaz 14 certainly will not disappoint on this score. But it is it's accessibility and ease of control that is the real genius of this affordable cat. It is a great way for anybody even including lightweight or relatively inexperienced sailors to sail at very high speeds whilst remaining totally in control. 

The Topaz 14 enables beginners to learn to sail a catamaran at a much earlier age and is therefore an ideal choice for sailing schools and holiday companies,  Sunsail has 14 at their prestigious centre in Phokaia, Turkey from 2008.

Fast and fun yet exceptionally stable and forgiving.  The controls, from raising the mainsail and jib to handling the mainsheet loads are geared so that even young or lighter crew can handle them comfortably in up to a force 4-5

The rig, whilst providing ample power, has been developed so that it contains a high level of control even for novice crews.  In high winds, mainsail reefing comes as standard and a furling jib system can be fitted as an optional extra.  Then there is the ultimate upgrade for a turbo-powered ride you can add a fantastic 10m2 gennaker.
