VaiVai – Gunboat’s first in a new 57 series heads to Newport for its boat show debut.

Lightweight, strong, and made with 100% epoxy infused carbon foam sandwich construction, this 57 model was based on the following principles: ease of sailing, comfort, speed and luxury. Keeping within these design principles, the owner of VaiVai decided to take his Gunboat 57 to a whole new level of performance.

Precise craftsmanship from Croswait Custom Composites along with continued invaluable design support from Nigel Irens has truly made VaiVai the embodiment of her name, which means “Go Go” in Italian. Some of GB5701’s performance enhancements include:

To get an idea of how much of a dream she is under sail, check out this video by Nick Black from Rigging Projects Ltd who described the newly launched VaiVai as having “the potential to be an absolute weapon.”

Sailing innovation and performance aside, VaiVai’s stunning interior reflects a diligent focus on lightweight yet elegant design. With clear coat carbon accents, recessed stainless fixtures, and soft Whisper Wall white liners, this interior has the vibe of a contemporary, modern loft with the capability to cruise with comfort and ease.
