2015 Gunboat 55 (55ft)

STARR is a 2015 Gunboat 55 hull # 09. Her hull and deck were built by Gunboat with epoxy infused carbon with Corecell foam cores. STARR is the original essence of what Gunboat set out to do. She was custom finished in 2017 by Crosswait Composites (many of the former Gunboat NC based boatbuilders from 2015) to meet the owner's requirements to achieve a sailing yacht deliberately kept simpler and more reliable for operation by the owner-operator. This Gunboat 55 gets back to Gunboat's roots when owners enjoyed operating, sailing, and ably cruising their Gunboats themselves, without crew. STARR's systems are much simpler than what has become the recent more complex norm. Her carbon centerboards are adjusted simply by lines without complex hydraulics. If you touch bottom, you appreciate just replacing a down line, rather than the headache a daggerboard boat may endure. Her winches are manual, and can be powered by their handheld electric powered handles.

Used Sail Catamaran for Sale 2015 Gunboat 55

A Gunboat 55 may be one of the all-time great bluewater family cruisers. That fact can get lost by the pundits hype, cost and complexity of many Gunboats. However, this Gunboat 55 delivers three cabins, two heads, a gorgeous salon that can be truly opened up on nice days, and stunning lines. Her long slender waterline is where the bluewater magic happens. This all-carbon fiber Gunboat 55 is lightweight, efficient, quick, and has minimal motion offshore. Her proportions were kept deliberately narrow to reduce motion. Wider cats are notoriously more jerky underway. The Gunboat 55 is 57' long and 25' wide. Her only motion is forward with ease. Her high wing deck will prevent wing slams in all but the most severe conditions. She will sail offshore sitting on 8-14 knots for days and deliver higher daily averages for shorthanded cruising crews than just about any other owner-operator cruiser. She will do so while throttled back from her ultimate potential.
