As you already know, the two badass-fast Gunboats that will be on display at the United States Sailboat Show in Annapolis starting on Thursday have already made an appearance at the Newport Boat Show in September.
But the badassness of the 55’s design (pictured above) is not new to Gunboat. Peter Johnstone and company have been doing badass pretty well now for a while, as you can see in the shots of the 60 pictured below.
Umm, can you say…these boats are unlike anything else out there?
In fact, another part of my “evil plan” is to do a longer profile on company founder Peter Johnstone, so watch this space for that too. Trust me, Peter is an interesting guy and if you don’t know his story, you’ll be amazed at what he’s done. And just so we’re all on the same page—spoiler alert—he’s related to the JBoats Johnstones but he’s not involved with the company.
And I haven’t even begun to talk about the G4 that’s in the works… Is this what the future looks like?
Be sure to check back later for the next installment of “Showtime.” And stay tuned for regular updates from the show on Twitter, on Facebook, and Instagram too.
