Jason Fry, Director, Topper International Ltd said: "We are thrilled to be a part of the V&A's exhibition celebrating great British Design. We are very proud to have one of our products selected alongside other very notable examples of truly great design.
The Topper is rightly seen as an iconic product that, even after well over 20 years of continuous production (over 50,000 boats), is still arguably the most successful and competitive Junior Racing Class in the UK. It is the outstanding build quality, durability and innovative design features that have made the Topper one of the most popular boats in Britain."
The Topper dinghy is also due to be on display at Make it in Great Britain running from 24 July to 9 September at the National Science museum alongside: Sunseeker, Jaguar, McLaren and Rolls Royce among others, as part of their comprehensive showcase of British manufacturing.
