For sale is my Topper Topaz Uno Plus with an additional Tres rig.
The basic Topper Topaz with the Uno rig is suitable for 1 or 2 teenagers or realistically 1 adult plus teenager or 1 adult. The sail can be reefed by rolling it around the mast. Also included is the jib which makes it a Topaz Uno Plus. Once this rig has been outgrown or isn't providing enough excitement, the Topaz Tres rig (with stayed mast, fully battened mainsail, roller reefing jib, asymmetric gennaker and trapeze kit) can be installed on the same hull. The Tres rig does really require 1 adult and teenager or 2 teenagers in anything other than light wind conditions as it is a powerful rig!
The hull is sound, but has a few surface scratches due to its age. I have only used the boat in freshwater for the last 2 years, however I believe that the previous owner occasionally used it off a beach. All the blocks/controls work well and the mainsheet/jibsheets/kicker are all in good condition. The rudder is the Tres rudder, which is longer and is GRP compared to the standard Uno rudder. It has a few chips in the gelcoat but these are easily repairable. A new tiller extension and UJ has been fitted this year. The daggerboard is the standard unbreakable plastic Topper daggerboard. It has a few scratches but these would sand out if you were serious about racing. The Uno mainsail is in average condition, although I haven't used it for the last year. The Uno Jib is also in average condition for learning and club racing. The Tres mainsail is in average condition (it is the original dacron fully battened sail, not the current mylar half-battened main offered with new Tres boats). There are 2 Tres Jibs, one in average condition and one new and unused in the bag (this one is mylar). The Tres jib sits on the optional Furler which allows the jib to be roller reefed on the water. The Tres gennaker is in average/repaired condition with one area that has been professionally repaired, although one leg of the single-line halyard attachment loops needs to be sewn back on.
The boat comes with combi trailer (i.e. launching trolley that fits onto a road base). Road tyres are in good condition. Also included is a burgee, spare burgee clip (new), 'Praddle' for self-rescue paddling yourself home, Owners' Manual and Rigging Guide, foils bag and Mast Up cover (for the Tres rig, but also usable for the Uno rig). This is still watertight but has faded slightly and has a couple of small holes in it near the bow where the furler pushed its way through.
More photos available on request. Boat is currently at Castle Semple Sailing Club, Lochwinnoch, Renfrewshire.
For sale by separate negotiation (not included in the stated price) are a new Tres rudder and a Uno Race mylar battened mainsail (one year old), always rolled, good condition.
