Gunboat G4 - she flies... and capsize!

The new Gunboat catamaran G4 is in the water...

The nautical world changed last year when we watched, stunned, the incredible spectacle during the final of the America’s Cup.
Catamarans can now fly above the waves, and reach speeds which were still unimaginable not so long ago. A dream for many enthusiasts, and it is to allow them to experience this kind of unique excitement that the builder Gunboat thought about developing the G4. A catamaran which is as fast as a racing boat, but offers real accommodation for spending several days aboard, just like in a classic cruising boat. An ‘island’ galley equipped with two burners, 100 liters of cold storage, as well as two ‘queen-size’ beds in the salon and an unobstructed view of the sea: that’s the accommodation.
But the catamaran G4’s ‘must’ is of course the famous foils which are supposed to allow the all-carbon catamaran, weighing just 2,400 kg unladen, to rise above the waves, to reach impressive speeds.
But the Gunboat G4-01 "Timbalero III" finds the limit while racing on the final day of Les Voiles de St. Barth.
Nobody's has been hurt and a couple of hours later, the catamaran was in the right position.
