Taking shape: Build milestones for Gunboats 80.02, 72.02, and 68.07

Parallell to an exciting season showcasing our latest Gunboats in the Mediterranean, our team of boatbuilders has been achieving significant milestones in preparation for the 2024 launch, following the same successful approach as in 2023.

In terms of visual progress, we've reached a remarkable point where all three boats have taken on their full, distinctive silhouettes. At their respective lengths of 68, 72, and 80 feet, these designs are distinctively Gunboat and complementary, yet unique. The remaining stages of systems and interior fit out, paint and finishing yield details that only inspire us with stronger visions of the final product and sailing adventures to come.

Gunboat 80.02

A look at our 2nd Gunboat 80 in all prepreg carbon fiber, moving stations at the completion of structural fitout. It is now transitioning into the painting process. What sets the Gunboat apart from the other models is its high degree of customization. While the 80.01, recently graced the race circuit, Gunboat 80.02 is poised to become the ultimate family cruiser.

Gunboat 72.02

The “aerial” team de-mold and flip the deck of Gunboat 72.02. Dry fit followed with an exceptionally precise fit, and the deck and coachroof are now bonded on 72.02.
