The future Gunboat 68 is the first model developed by the American shipyard, since its takeover by the French Group Grand Large Yachting, after its bankruptcy.
In the Gunboat range, the all new Gunboat 68 will replace the Gunboat 66, formerly constructed by the Hudson Group, and then complete the Gunboat 57.
According to the shipyard, the Gunboat 68 should be “a step change in the evolution of the brand”, with a new design, for a quite similar marketing offer.
The new platform of this Gunboat 68 has been developped by a new team of designers – the one who signs the Outremer Catamarans range, another brand of the Grand Large Yachting Group – with close coordination from the existing owners and crew, as well as industry insiders.
The core design team includes naval architect VPLP Design, interior designer company Wetzels Brown Partners, and exterior stylists Patrick le Quément and Christophe Chedal-Anglay.
The new Gunboat 68 will directly compete the HH 66 by HH Catamarans shipyard.
