The World's Premier High Performance, Luxury, Cruising Catamarans
Over 15 years ago, Gunboat set out to launch the fastest, safest cruising catamaran ever conceived. When the original Gunboat launched, it pioneered a new high-performance cruising catamaran segment. With rugged high-tech structures, breakthrough ocean-going designs, and luxurious interiors, word of our work spread quickly. The knowledge gained from working with premier designers on nine different series and years of refinement and innovation push us to ever improve and evolve the market segment we created.
A well-designed systems package can be the difference between enjoying a sunset with a cold drink in the aft cockpit or your head buried in the engine room. In this article, we share some insight into Gunboat 68 systems design as it relates to the backbone electrical and plumbing systems - from concept to installation, and with built-in "future proofing"!
After years of development and working close with the engineers from Torqeedo by sharing our needs and requirements for Moonwave – we now have the complete Deep Blue Hybrid System installed on board...
We're excited to see the Roam short film "Lines to Hawaii" has been selected to screen at the 40th annual Mountainfilm Festival in Telluride, CO, in good company with many other inspiring documentaries! Watch Travis Rice and Ian Walsh voyaging on Gunboat 48 FALCOR from Tahiti to Hawaii, finding never-been-surfed spots, and basically making all of our bucket lists a little longer.
Post a photo for us if you're lucky enough to be attending this awesome festival over Memorial Day Weekend, or catch the film through the link below!

Ian Walsh We are proud to announce that our short film, “Lines to Hawaii,” has been selected to screen later this month at the 40th annual Mountainfilm in Telluride, Colorado. While sailing 2,500 nautical miles from Tahiti to Hawaii, snowboarder Travis Rice and I explored the some of the most pristine ecosystems on the planet, the Line Islands, located in the Central Pacific. We found waves that may have never been surfed before, tasted the sweetest coconuts ever, and endured a fierce squall in the Doldrums. 73% of the water samples we collected contained microplastics, confirming that even the most secluded parts of the ocean are contaminated by human consumption.
Can only be one thing. A lovely new rotating all carbon wingmast from Southern Spars! ❤️ Close?
Looks like a large box to keep masts in - could prove useful

New WiFi antennae?
I'm thinking that it must be a customized fishing rod. After all, given the typical pace at which Gunboats move, a large 'bending moment' is required in order to keep the line from snapping for anything but the smallest of minnows. Alternatively, it is a suitably sized newfangled cat tail (please excuse the pun 😉), with the same intended function as a feline's tail: enhanced stability.
