Multihull of the year

TopCat 18 Spitfire

The United States and Breat Britain were the first countries that developed the first modern, monotype sports cat. Howerver, Germany was never far beheind thanks to its TOPCAT 15's and 18's. Barely known in France, these cats proved to be top quality stuff when I tried them out at the beginning of September at Ile de Ré.

Transport mit dem Trailer

In 2014 the boat was completely redesigned and brought to the market with a new image. New wavepiercer hulls provide more safety and performance. The new cunningham system and the height-adjustable trapez increase the handling comfort - especially in stronger winds. Thanks to its size and construction, the TOPCAT K1 reacts very reliably even at top speed.

The catamaran is qualified for the use of 2 to 4 people. Sailed by 2 persons in the regatta use, the performance version is fully equipped with gennaker and Pentex sails. Sailing schools appreciate the space of the catamaran for teaching as well as for renting. Options such as reinforced hulls, keel shoes or reefing sails have been specially developed for teaching. These features preserve materials or can be used for different skill levels or wind conditions.
