GUNBOAT 78

The one and only GUNBOAT 78 is a custom-built, cruising optimized paradise. She’s a Gunboat to the core with lightweight, all-carbon construction and performance, and a light, airy interior that is practical yet luxurious. A whisper of wind leads to acceleration you can feel. Her waterline enables smooth sailing without motion.

At 78 feet, she is a magical size that delivers all of the comforts of much larger yachts. Her two spacious hulls house 4 guest cabins with their own separate heads, as well as a fully equipped galley, crew mess, and cabin. The galley down/crew quarters configuration yielding an enormous, open living space in the salon. She is the ideal yacht for those who love quality sailing and the services and comforts of a full-time crew, without going to gauche proportions.

Gunboat 78 My Cat is cruising optimized with all of the toys and amenities to make the most of a summer in the Med, winter in the Caribbean, or a lap around the world. Launched in 2016, she is well-loved and maintained by her owner under excellent care by professional captain and crew. Guests lounge on custom cushions on the trampoline, read and relax on the massive sun/shade beds in the spacious aft cockpit, entertain friends and family in the open salon or aft cockpit, all with 360-degree views and plenty of seating and table space. When feeling active, set sail at speeds over 20kts without even realizing it. Or spend a day at anchor – the Gunboat 78 utilizes the abundant storage space to carry gear for any number of water activities including water scooters, SUP’s, and scuba.

Sailors love steering from the state-of-the-art interior helm station and captain’s chair and sail-handling from the forward working cockpit, which are only steps from each other making communication clear and easy. Gunboat 78 My Cat has a personality all of her own and a gift for captivating everyone who she encounters along her journeys.
