    i am not a blow boat lover but I must say that Gun Boats are exceptional. I have dealt with 5 or 6 6 of these over the years and the owners love them.

    too bad they just announced the closure of their operations in South Africa, where they used to built their >60ft models. those surely were great cats !

    What I understood was that they only build the smaller boats in China. Just like Leopard.

    They are in China at Hudson. They might build something big somwhere else. But they have two SA's in China overseaing things.

    They had a team of westerners that they had to let go recently.
