The Gunboat 68 is the culmination of over 15 years of development within the fleet. It honors the past while boldly moving into the future. A dream team of designers has developed the platform with close coordination from the existing owners and crew, as well as industry insiders. The core design team includes VPLP design and interior/exterior stylist Christophe Chedal Anglay and Patrick le Quément.
Construction and Design
The lightweight, all-carbon composite construction of the Gunboat 68 is the foundation of this robust platform that is capable of handling a wide variety of conditions encountered when offshore sailing. The design features long, high-aspect straight daggerboards, retractable rudders and wave piercing bows. The mast located further aft combined with an increased beam offers a higher safety margin and increased performance. All of these design decisions are made with aesthetics, performance and utmost safety in mind.
