SPACIOUS, DURABLE, SIMPLE, SAFE AND STABLE
The Taz can be sailed by two people and can also be sailed singlehanded. On one hand, a child as light as 30kg can handle a Taz, and on the other the Taz has capacity to carry 90kg, meaning that two children or an adult and child can sail together.
The hull is deceptively spacious and has the same cockpit capacity as some more expensive rivals. The unrivalled Topaz TRILAM construction produces a supremely durable hull with high levels of buoyancy. At just 40kg, the hull is also impressively lightweight making the boat manageable afloat and ashore even for young children.
The Taz comes with mainsail and jib as standard. The hard wearing Dacron mainsail is favoured by first-time sailors and schools. The rig is simple and lightweight enough to be operated by a child single-handedly, although the Taz is often used as a two person trainer or recreational dinghy.
It uses the same foils as the Topper, which are capable of dealing with all the knocks and bumps of beginner sailing. The self-draining cockpit, righting lines and grab rails making it extremely safe to sail.
The Taz comes with the highest specification equipment fitted as standard making the boat a pleasure to sail and keeping gear failure to an absolute minimum. The boat also comes with a 3-year hull warranty.
