Rolling a Gunboat out of the paint shed marks one of the most exciting build milestones! The dramatic visual impact is a reward to the build team and an announcement to the rest of the world that another Gunboat 68 is soon to launch. Gunboat 6802 is a custom shade of blue-gray, and we can’t wait to see how the blue skies and turquoise waters bring out these hues!
