Gunboat 62, wicked fast too


How about a 62’ sailing cat with an interior like a sleek apartment and the performance of a carbon racer? Sailing Anarchy has the story here, including a larger version of the picture above, in which you can better see all the Raymarine electronics. I’ll bet those big displays are E-120s, which have XVGA out ports, and thus that 42” LCD TV may be be set up to repeat one of the E screens. I’ve seen a Gunboat 42’ in a stiff breeze on Chesapeake Bay and she was flying. Check out the video at the company site.

  1. Another good site to look at if you want to see the Gunboat 62 in action is, where they have a great video of Safari, a Gunboat 62 cat, blowing the doors off of a Reichel Pugh 80.

    Yes very impressive. Although you would think they would fix the jib leach flutter. I give the nod to the RP80 on a W/L course.

    So where does the helm sit? The sofa seat back look a bit uncomfortable!
