Description: The Gunboat 68 is the culmination of >15 years of development within the fleet. It honors the past while boldly moving into the future. A dream team of designers developed the platform with close coordination from the existing owners and crew, as well as industry insiders, to make the Gunboat 68 the greatest Gunboat ever built. The core design team includes VPLP design and interior/exterior stylists Christophe Chedal Anglay and Patrick le Quément.
Lightweight, all carbon composite construction form a robust platform that is capable of handling the wide variety of conditions encountered when offshore sailing. The design features long, high-aspect straight daggerboards, retractable rudders and wave piercing bows. The mast located further aft combined with an increased beam offers a higher safety margin and increased performance. All of these design decisions are made with aesthetics, performance and utmost safety in mind.
The disciplined focus on lightweight performance design does not stop at the exterior, and the Gunboat 68 interior combines high end design, flexibility and a new level of comfort and style. The choice of materials optimizes the feeling of lightness and space – creating uncluttered spaces with ergonomics and practicality at the forefront.
A performance sailor's dream: Gunboat 6801 features the upgraded performance rig package, a new set of North Sails, and the addition of dual aft helm stations. Demountable furniture in the salon and aft cockpit allow you to modify the bridgedeck interior layout quickly and with ease for cruise or race mode, cocktail party, dinner or lounge. The current owner keeps her sitting in race-ready condition, with a simple straightforward process to return to cruising mode.
