world cruising

All-access pass

The design of the Gunboat 60 applied all of Gunboat’s learning from over two million sea miles with its earlier 62’ and 66’ series. The Gunboat 60 featured supreme sailing performance with her all carbon and epoxy construction, and took interior design and comfort to new levels for extended liveaboard cruising. Perfectly sized to take advantages of a lot of benefits that we have learned occur at 60′ – Smooth motion, incredible spaces and the potential for 300+ mile daily runs combine to make the Gunboat 60 exceptional.
