NAME

VELA

The embodiment of spirit and adventure, this Gunboat 48 is on the search for her next custodian!

Borne of Gunboat’s singular commitment to quality and durability, “Vela” has spent most of her life travelling some of the worlds most spectacular locations with some of the worlds foremost watermen and adventurers.

Now its your turn to join the legend…..

“Vela” is currently lying in the North of New Zealand and has been a recent recipient of an extensive refit ensuring that she is 100% ready to go on her next adventure. Lightweight and robust hulls feature North Sails 3di technology flying from a Marstrom Carbon mast supported by ECsix carbon rigging. The Gunboat 48 strikes the balance between performance and comfort in a manner rarely seen on performance catamarans under 50ft.

The saloon space flows beautifully into the hulls and forward in to the forward cockpit, sail handling area which of course leaves the aft cockpit space open and free for socialising and watching the world go by.

Recently returning to her original metallic blue hull colour with black accenting provided by the forebeam, mast and trampolines, “Vela” is champing at the bit to get back to exploring! Professionally managed and maintained, “Vela” is currently winterised with all sails serviced and stored with North Sails NZ.

Cure Marine is proud and excited to be appointed as the Global Central agent for the iconic Gunboat 48 “Vela”.
