Some have called me the master of the obvious but I’m going to say it anyway…there’s just nothing like a Gunboat. Period.
But, you may not know that the new Gunboat 55 I recently toured with company founder/visionary Peter Johnstone at the Newport Boat Show is not just unlike any other boat...it’s unlike any other Gunboat. And yes, forgive me if I restate the obvious, but, for those of you that may not know, Johnstone’s all-carbon/ultra-sexy/badass-fast Gunboats have been redefining the meaning of “performance cruising catamaran” for years now.
I mean look at the entry on starboard bow, for cripes’ sake. Have you ever seen a finer entry on any boat—not to mention a 55-footer that’s capable of crossing oceans with blistering alacrity? You could cut a tomato on that thing! It doesn’t just pierce the waves. It slices through them like a sushi knife in the hands of a master.
And be sure to check back soon for more info and hopefully a firsthand account of what it’s like to sail this bad boy.
