The Gunboat 57 is a lightweight, high tech 57’ performance cruising
catamaran for the owner-operators or sailing with a small crew. Building on the success of her earlier sisters, the Gunboat 57 was designed on the principles of simplicity, reliability and ease of access. The 57 is ideal for cruising, daysailing with friends, and competitive racing, and features several innovations for unmatched performance, operation and style. From the central helm and navigation center you can self-tack the jib with a turn of the wheel and control all lines, halyards and furlers at an arm's reach. An over-sized retractable moonroof above the helm allows clear view of your sails and large step-through sliding windows forward gives you access to the bow area and gives that "wind in your hair" sensation that all sailors know and love.
