no go at the show?
If your dream boat was the Wauquiez Pilot Saloon 48, you may wish to steer clear for a bit; the boat at the US Sailboat Show in Annapolis seems to have some legal issues…
In other news, the new Gunboat is rising from the ashes of their bankruptcy on the back of the just-announced Gunboat 68. It’s just vaporware as of today, but with orders already placed, we expect we’ll see this gorgeous creature IRL before too long. and she looks gorgeous. The VPLP design seems to integrate some of the swoopier, sexier lines of the Nigel Irens boats (G55, G60) without losing the look of power and substantialness of the more enduring 48/62/66. With longtime SA’ers running the project, you can of course get firsthand info in the forums. Find Nils and Mer hanging out at the boatshow.
