Gunboat 72V


Slightly longer and beamier than the Gunboat 68, the Gunboat 72V features both a larger nacelle and, notably, a vast flybridge. The objective is to offer a comfortable and fast luxury multiyacht in the Gunboat family in addition to the very sporty Gunboat 68. The 72 V obviously remains a very powerful catamaran, capable of sailing in wind speeds above 8 knots. Compared to the 68, it’s over 10 tons more despite the extreme care taken in the choice of materials and the quality of construction... but the sail plan is more powerful than that of the Gunboat 68 Racing – 3,100 sq ft (288 m²) upwind as opposed to 2,710 (252), and 4,845 sq ft (450 m²) downwind against 4,680 (435). Note that the interiors are made entirely according to the owner's wishes.
