“Fast, well mannered, easy to sail and good looking, this is the kind of a boat that will appeal to sailors of all ages and backgrounds… will thrill its crew when the wind is up…
while not scaring the wits out of less experienced sailors.
The Topaz Argo is one of those rare boats that not only does both, but does both well.”

The ARGO is a fourteen foot sailing dinghy designed specifically for club training and family recreational sailing. It has comfortable capacity for up to four adult crew. This could be an instructor and up to three pupils or a family of four. The ARGO is also great sailed two-up or even singlehanded.
The balance between performance, power, responsive handling and stability is spot on for a wide range of sailing abilities while the load capacity, versatility and maintenance free durability of the Argo ticks all the boxes for sailing schools and young families.
As soon as you step aboard you will notice how stable the ARGO sailing platform is. The ARGO has a dynamic, yet forgiving ultra-stable hull shape and an easily controllable rig that isn’t too hairy for less experienced sailors but also has years of progression built in. All-in-all the ARGO is fast and exciting but also easily controllable and well mannered.
The ARGO has a contoured side deck to provide a really comfortable sit-in feel. A high freeboard, deep spacious cockpit and high boom, plus unrivalled stability and a smooth ride mean that the ARGO has a wonderfully reassuring, safe and secure feel.
There is comfortable capacity for up to four crew for instruction or to load up with friends and equipment for a group day out. The single line mainsail reefing system and roller reefing jib mean that the ARGO can easily be depowered dependent on crew and conditions.
The ARGO comes with an exciting asymmetric spinnaker system AND the option of a simpler symmetrical spinnaker system which is ideal for training, for less experienced crews or for certain sailing conditions.
Topper’s unrivalled TRILAM construction means the boat will stand up to all the stresses of training and racing and is virtually maintenance free.
The ARGO has safety features such as a mast head float, righting lines and grab rails all fitted as standard. An epoxy centreboard and rudder and the highest specification equipment also all come as standard.
