Ringing in the New Year with the #GunboatTop10

Leading up to the new year we recapped some of the top moments of 2022. Each year brings a unique set of highlights – a mix of sailing adventures and our progress in boatbuilding – that we value so much and hope you enjoy reflecting upon with us. Head to social media for the full countdown from 10:

0️⃣3️⃣ From a birds eye perspective to a closer look onboard – Inspiring Transatlantic photos and video footage from Gunboat 6804 TOSCA with Alex Thomson Racing! This vision of offshore sailing – featuring a nice balance of sending it and staying warm, dry and well fed in the comfort of the salon – earned a spot on magazine covers and features articles throughout the year!

0️⃣2️⃣ Exotic destinations and the spirit of adventure – Gunboat 68 SeaTilt takes us beyond the borders of our imagination to Greenland!

This spectacular place, where little to no cruising guidance exists as a reference, is a drastic diversion from the typical palm tree destinations. They demonstrated that with the right preparation, “extreme” trips like these go from daunting to the trip of a lifetime.

0️⃣1️⃣ Gunboat 80 build updates were the most popular communications we put out in 2022. The two Gunboat 80s currently in build have a substantial presence at the factory and represent what’s at the heart of Gunboat – constant evolution and refinement. In collaboration with passionate yacht owners, we continue to push the boundaries and advance all Gunboat series. So for 2023 we invite you to join us in dreaming BIGGER! The first 80 launches summer 2023 and we can’t wait to go sailing!
