The Double Debut – Cannes and Newport

September 2019 marked the public debut of the Gunboat 68 simultaneously at two boat shows – with 6801 CONDOR in Newport and 6802 DASH in CANNES!

Referred to “The Superstar” of the top boats to see at Cannes, and deemed Best New Sailboat at NIBS by the judges of Cruising World, Sailing World, and Yachting magazines – years of dedication to the Gunboat 68 project were finally on test and available for public review!

At the same time in Newport, visitors enjoyed a showcase of brokerage listings just a short walk away from the boat show at Gurneys – a unique opportunity to explore the history and evolution of Gunboat design!
