We have had a glimpse of the first Gunfleet 58 hull, hot off the production line, and it looks like a promising addition to the company’s range.

Gunfleet 58

Hot out of the mould - the first Gunfleet 58 hull

The Tony Castro-designed Gunfleet 58 is a modern blue water cruising yacht that aims to major on performance, innovation and offer ‘best‐in‐class accommodation and features'.

Gunfleet 58The 58 is ideal for shallow waters, a nod perhaps to the company's home on the East Coast. As standard, she has a hydraulic centerboard and twin rudders giving her a draft of just 1.75m with the board up.

Below decks, her modern, hand-crafted accommodation will provide four spacious cabins. The owner’s aft stateroom and the forward ‘VIP’ cabin are both en‐suite. Wrap‐around deck saloon windows and panoramic hull windows promise a light‐flooded interior and great ventilation.

The Gunfleet 58 is due to premier at the Dusseldorf Boat Show in January 2013 and will be delivered to her owner for the 2013 season.
