Gunboat is coming out with a new catamaran in their range. There was a gap to fill between the 66 and the 90 and they came out with the GUNBOAT 78 designed by Irens and Cabaret.

The designers have used their experience creating the record breakers IDEC II and SODEBO to design the hulls which are really powerful. Built in vaccuumed sandwinch with carbon spars as all the GUNBOAT range no doubt it will be a very fast cruising catamaran. The interior layout remains very original and confortable. The platform host a large salon with a folding dining area. The five cabines include 2 masters cabins with queen berths as well as in the Captain’s cabin. As usual the forward cockipt is used for sail handling. No need to run around the boat and take risks to sail. Every thing is in this protect cockpit, the central nerve to the GUNBOAT. One the the GUNBOAT‘s signatures with the carbon dagger boards and now rudders both retractable to reduce as much as possible the draft.

I really look forward to see the first in production and sailing.
