The GUNBOAT 48 is the largest reasonably managed yacht that can be operated by the owner without crew. Kept simple, the spaces are well designed to achieve ample privacy and spaces for a 2-3 couples or a family for extended cruising. The Gunboat 48 is designed to be suitable for day-sailing, sabbatical cruising, or year-round world-cruising.

BENEFITS Never has handling a mega-cat been so easy. Within two steps of the helm are the sail and anchor controls, as well as the nav station. The forward cockpit offers unfettered and unobstructed access for a sailing crew of one. Flow is key to design. The indoor-outdoor helm opens up to the forward working cockpit. All sail and anchor controls are two steps from the helm. The aft porch is dedicated to relaxation, and if you like, sun worship. Elements of work and play are kept apart so everyone can put their worries away. With all sail controls leading into the forward cockpit, there is no reason to walk along the rail of the boat. Known to cruisers as the “death walk”, this walk is a thing of the past as you can step out of the safety of the main cabin into the forward cockpit to reef the main, hoist or furl any sail, and do all your trimming.

FEATURES Visibility: 360 Degree View Whether you’re cooking, helming, navigating, lounging, playing, or sunning, from any point it seems there is a 360 degree view of the horizon. It only takes 10 minutes to sail there, so safety demands that visibility be excellent. Speed = Safety The ultimate safety feature is pure speed. Sail around storms. If a storm is unavoidable, safety is derived from the ability to surf sideways. With daggerboards up, the round bottom hulls will skate sideways along waves, and the long high bows offer tremendous reserve buoyancy. We believe mega catamarans are the safest platform for surviving the worst weather. Engineered high tech composite structures, clean minimum wetted surface underbodies, and strict weight centralization combine to deliver an easily driven platform for high sustained passage making speeds. 300 nm days are common. 400 nm days are possible. Retractable Rudders With rudders and daggerboards retracted, Gunboats draw less than two feet of water. Imagine the many shallow waters that are available. For sailing in shallow bays, the rudders may be partially raised, without adverse affect on steering. Imagine the shallow cruising grounds that are now open to explore.
