Sailing school boats and rental boats undergo heavy use.
TOPCAT offers various ways to protect the hulls:
For one thing, the hulls have already been reinforced during production at critical points, such as the bow, stern, keel or spar passages - places that the customer can’t see from the outside.
For another thing, the entire length of the keel is protected by replaceable keel shoes. Consequently, slipping along the bottom or accidental hard landings is hardly worth worrying about.
Durability thanks to GRP
Especially in sailing schools, damage is often unavoidable. However, hulls made of GRP can usually be repaired easily and at a low cost. GRP has a significantly longer service life compared to PE. With a little care and polish, TOPCAT hulls look like new even after many years passed - and make a good impression on both customers and anybody else who may be interested!
