The Topaz Catamarans have been designed by International multihull racing legends Yves Loday and Robert White. With such sailing experience and pedigree, not to mention their proven design track records, it comes as little surprise that the Loday/White team have produced such a stunning range of cats.
The 14 is a wonderful 14 foot catamaran that is fast, fun and forgiving and is ideally suited to lighter weight crews. There is room on the trampoline for three for cruising. The Topaz 14C has a twin trapeze and a powerful 11.50m2 sail area courtesy of a large Dacron main and jib. The 14CX has a decent 10.00m2 gennaker to provide a more powered up downwind ride.
The TOPAZ 14 XTREME is a souped up singlehanded variation. The XTREME version has a superb fathead Mylar mainsail coupled with a 9.90m2 asymmetric gennaker plus a trapeze to take full advantage of the staggering amounts of available power. The 14 XTREME is a sublime creation suited to a wide range of crew weights.
The Topaz cats are all roto-moulded in tri-laminated Metalicene™polyethylene producing the stiffest, lightest and most dynamic hulls available. The hulls are also extremely robust and low maintenance making them ideal for even the toughest sailing school environments.
