Gunboat build updates

by Gunboat 3 Aug 11:53 UTC

Gunboat 80

With a full prepreg structure that occupies a footprint of about 80' x 33', the Gunboat 80 makes a sizable impression! Assembly proved right on the mark - with the precise, efficiency and high quality we set out for through collaboration with Fibre Mechanics and Grupo Carboman (Decision and Multiplast).

Systems work is well under way on 8001, employing the principles and approach of the 68 with an even greater degree of customizability. Extensive R&D incorporates the owner's vision and technical use case, in a progression from concept to 3D modeling, to full scale mockups that also prepare the build team for a clean installation.

Meanwhile hull and bulkhead components of 8002 are nearing completion and soon to be transported to the Gunboat factory.

Gunboat 72V

On the Gunboat 72V, with the deck and coach roof bonded, interior fit out continues for a couple of months before the paint process begins.

Meanwhile, we're preparing to break ground on 72V02!

Gunboat 68

Meanwhile, infusion has started on Gunboat 6807, and 6806 is the next boat to launch - Currently in faring and paint, while the custom mast and longeron are built at Lorima and due for final assembly in the new year.

Planning on a Gunboat in the next few years? It's time to talk about build slots!!
