I was strongly in need of some nice luxury catamaran pictures so I logged on to GUNBOAT's blog managed by Chandler Collins, Gunboat's Pr, and I found those beautiful pictures by Billy Black of their latest launches the gold gun SUGGAR DADDY A GUNBOAT 66. So lets go for it...

SUGGAR DADDY first sea trials took place in Cape Town off the GUNBOAT shipyard November the 20 th. Peter Johnstone, GUNBOAT fonder, describes the 3 days off sea trials in a nice piece of writing you will find in the Gunboat Blog. In the picture above SUGGAR DADDY is doing more than 26 knots and if you take a close look to the picture above you will notice that glasses and bottles are standing straight on the cockpit table.
SUGGAR DADDY plans to sail to the Caribbeans, then down the East Coast of South America and round cape horn. A nice journey ahead..
A typical view of a GUNBOAT salon which includes at mast food the helm station. Gunboats offer a real high level of interior finish in a whole carbone/nomex structure. You get the best of both world : luxury interior and great performance.

Spectra is every where aboard, from the trampoline to the life-line, as well as carbon
