Sydney Yachts GTS43 build update and images May 2011

by Sydney Yachts on 3 May 2011
GTS 43 from Sydney Yachts Sydney Yachts . http://www.sydneyyachts.com
Built to satisfy the demands of today's discerning sailors, the Sydney Yachts GTS43 presents a marriage between impressive design and construction techniques to deliver a yacht that is light yet strong, easy to sail yet seriously fast, competitive, stylish yet functional, and above all else, seaworthy.

Australian built for total peace of mind.......

How good does this look!


The deck was dry fitted to the hull of 4301 last week to for the team to double check the interior and bulkheads. High temperature tooling has been completed in order to manufacture the pre preg carbon wheels.

We managed to take a few photos whilst the build team were on a break.

We are almost there, looking forward to launching and test sailing by the middle of June. It’s now all downhill to the finish now!


GTS logo on the lazarette hatch and numbering in the deck next to the mainsheet traveler and jib cars makes GTS 43 very modern and clean.

Top of the Gulf 2014 – Recovery Mode, and a Grand Finale
Never was it more true that ‘the last day makes the regatta’ (or otherwise) Yesterday’s weather played havoc with the racing programme. Today, the last day of the regatta, IRC 1 started with only three races on the card after three days of a four-day regatta. The Platus contesting the Coronation Cup had five scores, and needed seven to be able to make a drop – and some of them badly needed a drop!

Top of the Gulf 2014 – ‘A very trying day’ (Denis Thompson)
Here’s the spoiler: dodgy weather, consisting of thunder cells and rain squalls appeared (and in some cases parked) Today was a day that no Race Officer or sailor would want to repeat. Let’s put it into perspective – nobody died, no boats sank and Ocean Marina did not catch fire. However, the main topic on conversation after a day on the water was the weather, with a little bit of ‘what might have been’ thrown in.

Top of the Gulf 2014 – a Tale of Two Breezes
the Media boat stayed with the Platus hoping for some close quarters action. Good call. This is more like it – sunshine at breakfast time, and the promise of some scenic sailing, even if WindGuru was not an encouraging accompaniment to the eggs and bacon. In fact, it looked like a glass-out, but there was indeed breeze by 1120h and away went the Multihulls, followed by IRC 4, 1, 2, 3 on passage courses down towards Koh Khram Noi and Koh Rang Kwian
