Phaedo, a very trick and very orange Gunboat 66 has just been launched. We love this shot by Torbjörn Linderson from Marstrom Spars and one from the stern. Please note flowery description below from the PR team…

Phaedo has just splashed…. The owner and Captain went through the boat from stem to stern to
seek out, analyse, improve, and invent many new features and technology looking into the past
and bringing some of the old Gunboats unique features through and adding some new ones that
have now become the standard on Gunboats in the future, a big evolutionary step forward.

By a large margin this is the most aggressively built Gunboat, chasing the power to weight ratio,
with top speed as the goal. The unique black Quantum taffeta carbon fusion sails are hoisted on a High
Modules rig, containing carbon battens supported by PBO rigging,

There is an über modern, stylish, interior with open spaces instead of stuffed furniture, with
everything from weight saving, clear coat carbon counters instead of corian to being the words
fastest cruising cat with a pizza oven. This interior wouldn’t be out of place as a hip New York
City Central Park apartment.

On board is the largest Mastervolt distributed power system installed to date, cutting edge i-lèd
lighting system designed by www.in3design.com. Dancing to the tunes from Bang &Olufsen’s
latest BeoSound 5 system nestled in its own unique custom wenge and Acralite unit, back lite by
blue LED’s, with drinks coming from the Italian Vitrifrigo drawer fridges. Sitting on the raw
buffalo hide sofa surrounded by American walnut custom lightweight cored panelled units.

Navigating around the world will be a breeze, as the owner developed an extensive integrated
glass bridge system borrowing many ideas from his aviation background where navigation is

PHAEDO should be seen monohunting in the Caribbean this season. Lead mines consider
yourselves warned.
