Building dreams at Gunboat © Gunboat

Here at Gunboat headquarters, there's been a flurry of action since we released two new designs over the summer, with boats sold and production under way on all three series!

Gunboat 80: Two 80's are sold and in build! As seen in our first build update, prepreg carbon fiber construction sets the 80 on track to be truly exceptional, while delivering the highest quality and efficient build time for yachts in her class (including custom). Gunboat is leveraging industry expertise and advanced technologies from 3rd parties for certain components, which we'll integrate into the build at our factory in La Grande-Motte, France.

Gunboat 72V: All carbon construction in female molds, the super smooth hulls of the first 72V have been hatched at the Gunboat factory, where we specialize in large carbon fiber infusions. The 72V is a new concept, inviting discerning sailors who want an emphasized range of cruising features to join the fleet!

Gunboat 68: The metamorphosis of 6805 nears completion, emerging from the paint booth in color next week, and launching in February of 2022! 6806 is de-molded, bulkheads are in, the deck is in construction, and owner options are in discussion ahead of the fit-out.

The order book is filling in quickly. If you're entertaining plans to set sail on a newly built Gunboat in the next few years, it's time to talk!!
