Yacht Racing Forum announces long term partnership with Gunboat © Yacht Racing Forum

The Yacht Racing Forum is pleased to announce a three years partnership with Gunboat, a very dynamic and innovative company that focuses on high-tech yet confortable cruise-racing catamarans.

Founded in 2002 and owned by Grand Large Yachting, Gunboat has established itself as the gold standard for cruising catamarans. The brand offers Grand Prix monohull performance with the space, comfort, and volume of a cat, and the seaworthiness to handle the toughest blue water passages. Gunboat leads this specific market, thanks amongst others to the new Gunboat 68; a boat that combines luxury, performance and refinement.

"We are thrilled to welcome Gunboat as a long term partner & exhibitor ", says Bernard Schopfer, the organiser of the Yacht Racing Forum. " This is a truly innovative brand, developed by some of the best specialists from within the yacht racing industry. Gunboat creates a strong link between the yacht racing and cruise / leisure communities. "

BenoƮt Lebizay, partner at Grand Large Yachting Group, explains that " what we do, at Gunboat, is very close to what happens within top-end sailing teams: we share the same state of the art design teams, a great attention to details during the construction process, and a quest for perfection. On top of this, we also attach great importance to the quality of the interior design, and believe that performance can rhyme with comfort and reliability.

Gunboat will showcase their latest productions during the next Yacht Racing Forum, and actively participate in the Design & Technology Symposium, discussing the trickle down effects from the America's Cup and other top level sailing events on production boats.

The Yacht Racing Forum is the leading annual conference for the business of sailing and yacht racing. The event will take place on October 22-23, 2018 in Brittany, in the town of Lorient, at the heart of the mythical Sailing Valley, one of the world's most dynamic venues for the sport and the industry of sailing and yacht racing.
