Proven Lifting Rudder System
The easy to lift rudder system is the same rudder used on the Topaz UNO.
This keeps the rugged moulded blade in perfect condition by raising automatically when it touches the bottom.
This avoids damage to the rudder in unexpected shallow patches or rocky areas.
The sturdy rudder fitting is amongst the best on any production model sailboat.
The TAZ has a shock absorbent hull plate and nylon impact absorption pad fitted at the back of the centreplate to protect the hull and daggerboard.
Easy-Rig Mastgate System
The simple mastgate, using the same design as the Topaz UNO, eliminates the need to lift the mast in. The rig can be stepped by even a small child.
The two piece Mast and Boom has been adapted from the Topaz UNO. It's lightweight, robust and easy to store and transport inside a car.
