A Compact Junior Catamaran.
The Topaz 12 is the smallest catamaran in the Topper International range and is aimed at introducing youngsters to catamaran sailing at as early as possible.
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 Topaz 12 looks immaculate and has tremendous stability designed into the hulls with lots of volume in the bow to give the sailors a really confident feeling on the helm from the off.

A great first boat
The key to the 12 is her simplicity. Rigging is quick and easy. The 12 is simple and lightweight enough to be operated by one child although it is primarily designed for two crew, a child and an instructor or two children sailing together. The 12 features a manageable and durable Dacron Radial cut Mainsail and cross-cut jib, a sealed mast and a safe and simple lifting rudder system.
Tremendous stability & speed.
The 12 X option generates even higher performance with an added Gennaker System – while still retaining the excellent stability. The result; far more control and fewer spills than you’d expect from a boat with this much oomph.
Topaz 12 prices start at £6,695.00 (inc VAT.)
