Sydney Yachts GTS43 build update and images 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.
