“The Topaz 16 provides a different kind of sailing experience. On the water, it feels stiffer, lighter and more dynamic than any rotomoulded cat produced by Dart or Hobie, with taut feedback that qualifies as ‘true performance’ sailing” Yachts & Yachting

High Performance 16′ catamaran
• True performance catamaran sailing.
• Precise, well-mannered handling.
• Very robust, ultra-tough, maintenance-free TRILAM construction.
• ISAF ”Learn to Sail” Class.

International multihull racing legends Yves Loday and Robert White have designed the Topaz Catamarans. With such sailing experience and pedigree, not to mention their proven design track records, it comes as little surprise that the Loday/White team has produced such a stunning range of cats.

The TOPAZ 16 is an accessible but high-performance cat designed for a crew of two. The Topaz 16 has a twin trapeze and boasts a powerful 14.25 m2 sail area courtesy of a large Dacron main and jib. The 16 X upgrade includes an impressive 11.18m2 gennaker. The Topaz 16 also features a sealed mast and a safe and simple lifting rudder system as standard.

The Topaz cats are roto-moulded in tri-laminated Metalicene™ polyethylene, producing the stiffest, lightest, most dynamic hulls available. The hulls are also extraordinarily robust and low maintenance, making them ideal for even the most demanding sailing environments.
