Trimarans are expensive but this one is not as expensive as the Dragonfly 35 even if its interior is simpler and less well finished.

For about 200 000€ some lucky guy will have a boat that has cruising capacity, an incredible sailing performance and a boat that can fold in two ways: For transporting in a trailer and laterally (see the movie) to fit in the marina on a monohull place.
And it is also a looker. I will be waiting for a video of this one sailing, I bet it will be interesting.

The only thing I don't like on the boat is the interior. Yes I know it has to be simple not to make the boat expensive and to keep it light, but I am talking not only about materials but about interior design, particularly colors: They are all wrong for a modern boat of this type. If we look only to the interior we would say that this was an old boat.

The boat interior really needs the work of a good interior boat designer, one used to light materials.

Late to the dance, Paulo, but congrats on the new boat, she looks like a good compromise and should be a blast to sail.. pity to have to wait for June!

Thanks for that link to the racing at Antigua.. we were at the 'after party' for the Carib 600 a couple of years back in 2010.. very cool, relaxed laid back affair marred only the the fact that some boats had yet to finish.. it was a completely unexpectedly light air affair (so unexpected the committee never posted a time limit! so at least one boat was still 'racing' when they were handing out trophies...)

Thanks Faster.

Some interesting numbers regarding North America:



Based on a survey, which was attended by 93 sailboat manufacturer with a presence in North America, this report analyzes the business climate and the development of the industry.


In its 12th annual State of the Industry report, presented last week during the Miami International Boat Show, The Sailing Company outlined the industry’s challenges and opportunities in 2012.

Although there are “tough waters still ahead,” with election-year doldrums, an uncertain jobs outlook and other issues plaguing the U.S. economy, sailing participation remains strong, chartering remains strong for nurturing new buyers and consumer confidence is on the rise, the report said.

Some highlights of this year’s report include:

• Sailboat production in North America was down 3 percent in 2011 compared to 2010. The report says 6,322 boats were produced, down 170 from the year before.

• The recession has had a significant impact on sailboat builders in North America; the number of builders declined from 146 to 113 between 2005 and 2011.

The two size segments that saw growth were boats 12 to 19 feet and 30 to 35 feet, both of which were up 11 percent.

The largest boats were one of the hardest-hit segments; boats 46 feet and up were off 36 percent.

• Imports were up strongly, 32 percent from 2010, up to 251 units over 20 feet.

• After a poor showing in 2010, multihull imports were also up dramatically in 2011, representing 48 percent of all imports.

• Bareboat charters booked out of North American source markets were down slightly, off 6 percent, to 17,869 weeks. The overall decline came from the winter season and Caribbean destinations; the summer season and North American destinations fared better.

• Twenty percent of the sailboats built in North America in 2011 were for export.

• Sailboat builders are optimistic about 2012, predicting 14 percent growth, mostly in the 20- to 35-foot category.

For the ones that are sailing in Europe some news, mostly bad:

If you put diesel in UK or Gibraltar pay attention, they use for boats inexpensive red diesel (less taxed and much less expensive than car diesel) and what was a good news can turn in a nightmare because from April the 1st their use will only be legal inside the 12Nm UK waters. The fines will be heavy and I bet national coast guards will be checking on that because everybody in EC is pissed with that British exception to the EC law, I mean cheap diesel for pleasure and not only for working, as in any other EC countries.

Cross-Channel red diesel use outlawed | Sailing news | Yachting Monthly


In Italy, also bad news, with all the pleasure boats over 10m sailing in Italian waters paying a daily tax. Well not really sailing because if you don't stop you don't pay, but if you stay the night on anchor or go to a marina, you pay.

The boats on the hard don't pay.

The taxes are:



It seems not much but if you are going to pass some time in Italy, it is going to hurt, not to mention leaving the boat there. It makes the Croatia tax look insignificant.

I find the design quite innovative, and not a repetition of features on other "new" designs, from the deck layout, helm (why hasn't anyone else thought of this?), and interior design. Also notable are the many opening portholes and hatches for good ventilation below, which so many new designs lack. Sail handling looks like the boat would be easy to single hand as well.
The Mathews/ Castro combo should also assure good sailing performance, can't wait for a review.....

Some more information on the Gunfleet 43: Great interior, ugly boat, in my opinion. What a waste, it would be easy to make this a very nice boat.

And also a British one, a better looking one, the new Oyster 625, the winner of the 2012 European boat of the year in the class of Luxury Cruisers.

The boat has been a success with lots of commands and this one is on charter:
