The Topaz Magno is a Sailing dinghy created by Topper International designed for between 1 and 4 crew members, though usually 2.[2]

Performance and design[edit]

The Magno is a versatile three-sail boat that is great as either a small family boat or for club racing or teaching. The spacious cockpit with its gnav kicker[clarification needed] offers roomy and comfortable sailing and is an ideal teaching platform for groups. The boat can be sailed single-handedly due to the zip-reefing system in the mainsail adding yet another layer of versatility.

The Magno is a dinghy that can be used for learning to sail, to club racing.[3] The Magno, a mid-sized dinghy of the topper range, is a good boat for youth training, being stable with plenty of room for two trainees and an instructor. The boat has a Gnav kicker system which gives you more room in the cockpit.
