    This 'style' vessel reminds me of the open saloon/cockpit style of this Chris White powercat ......that further reminded me of the original Bertram 31 design

    Chris's boat...

    Look what Gunboat is now proposing,
    "Rather than several smaller spaces on the main deck chopped up by bulkheads, the Gunboat 50 has one huge uninterrupted space from the mast to the aft crossbeam. The space is entirely convertible. For daysailing or cruising in warm weather, the sides drop down for the ultimate outdoor feel. In inclement weather, the sides roll up to create a cozy cocoon, albeit with Gunboat’s unique 360 degree visibility.

    While many offerings in this size range stuff a mansion’s worth of un-used accommodations into the space, the Gunboat 50 shows ultimate restraint. There are simply two superyacht style cabins. Let’s face it, most people in this size range simply sail with their spouse, and on occasion, another couple. If the kids join the fun, they can sleep on the daybeds and sofas of the maindeck."

    The new Gunboat 50 is designed for the way we sail:

    +Entertaining friends on daysails
    +Shorthanded cruising with your spouse or maybe another couple
    +A sabbatical cruise, or a tropical circumnavigation

    Another 'open-space', convertible saloon-deck area cat.

    Gunboat appears to have taken this concept forward in great style
