With the launch of the first Gunboat 62 TRIBE back in 2001, Gunboat pioneered a new high-performance cruising catamaran segment in the sailing industry. With TRIBE, Gunboat achieved remarkable performance by pulling in technologies from Grand Prix yacht racing. At the same time, the real game-changer was that all this power could be safely handled with a family on board and just one person could manage most maneuvers while on watch. All sail controls were centralized in a secure forward cockpit right next to the interior helm, and Gunboat owners were setting off for short-handed, world cruising without compromising performance.
The forward cockpit is a signature feature of a Gunboat – an integrated command center. The helmsman is close to all of the sail controls, and the proximity keeps family, friends, and racing teams (people) in communication range with each other. At the dock, it provides a private outdoor space in harbors when you’re moored stern-to, and it’s the place where sailing enthusiasts tend to congregate when the boat is in party mode. We knew we were working on the heart of the Gunboat when we designed the Gunboat 68 forward cockpit, with the goal to celebrate and also refine, evolve, and improve on nearly 20-years of Gunboat sailing.

I'd definitely go for tillers! I love the instant feedback I get in the hand, when I hit that sweet spot with my asymmetric and the boat takes off. In all my years of sailing, I've never driven a boat with a wheel!
Tiller is fine I've had multiple boats with tillers all the way up to 30 foot. A wheel is the way to go But after a while it's quite a work out on the Long Haul. On a catamaran like the size of the gunboats I wouldn't even attempt to even try to imagine having a tiller
Tribe - a wonderful experience 😃
Today would have been the start to the 51st Newport Bermuda Race, and the race organizers have invited past participants to share favorite memories from this great race.
That would have to be 2018, when three Gunboats stepped up as the first-ever multihulls to take part in this iconic offshore challenge!
Here they are at the start - ARETHUSA, TRIBE, and ELVIS - in what were clearly not the most exhilarating of sailing conditions. The race tested the patience of the keenest of light air sailors but they were all rewarded upon arrival with cold drinks and the tropical oasis that is Bermuda. 🏝🏆
