The Vibe will undoubtedly appeal equally to hotshot youngsters, couples and parent-and-child combinations. The ideal weight combination falls between 120-135kg. The spacious cockpit, high boom, and the all-important extra-WIDE BEAM mean the power is easy to handle and guarantees a comfortable and stable platform for all age groups.

The Vibe offers a great introduction to performance sailing. It is designed as a hiking performance double-hander but can also be sailed with a single trapeze. The Mylar mainsail area can be reduced by up to 20% using the innovative zip reefing system, meaning that the boat can be altered to suit virtual novices and club racers and even set up as a single-hander.

The Vibe is an excellent choice for schools providing two-person race instruction. The beamy hull inspires great confidence in young, lightweight or inexperienced sailors. The chine in the hull provides even greater stability, meaning that the Vibe stays sailing, no matter who is at the helm when many of its competitors would capsize. It is a versatile boat that is fast, fun, stable, and easy to manage.

The huge, spacious cockpit with its gnav kicker offers roomy and comfortable sailing for two adults. There’s plenty of room at the back of the cockpit for an adult helm and enough gunwale space for a crew to enjoy life on the wire. The Vibe is also lightweight, making it easy to launch for adults or children and can be easily rigged using the hinged mast foot.

Topper’s unmatched TRILAM construction offers great buoyancy and resilience for training. Standard features include an epoxy centreboard and rudder, righting lines, grab rails, sealed one-piece mast and sails equipped with a flotation device.
