On the Road – Gunboat 80 Build Milestone

No doubt a sight to see rolling through the English countryside! Marking a significant build milestone, we see the Gunboat 80 hull structures, built entirely in prepreg carbon fiber by Fibre Mechanics in Lymington, England, in transit to the Gunboat factory in La Grande-Motte, France.

Final assembly at the Gunboat factory will be a collaborative effort, meanwhile the team back in Lymington start the cycle all over again with Gunboat 8002!

Port and Starboard hull drivers just couldn't help lining up in catamaran formation.

Arrival to the Gunboat factory caused quite a stir in La Grande-Motte, and the 80 is in place in the new dedicated building for the remainder of construction.
