||The GUNBOAT 90 SUNSHINE has set the bar for luxury sailing at race-boat speeds. Without a doubt, SUNSHINE is one of the fastest-sailing superyachts on the water.
In 8 knots true wind, SUNSHINE can go 12 knots upwind. In trade conditions, upwind speeds of 15-17 knots are easily achieved, and off-wind sailing can be in the high 20’s. Her draft offers a minimum of 4’-7” with boards up and a maximum of 10’-8” with boards down.
Heineken Regatta, St. Barth’s Bucket? Invite your friends and enjoy luxury live-aboard accommodations while screaming past some of the world’s best keel-boats. Leave the trophy and champagne bucket out on the table while sailing to a private cove for a swim on the way home.
One of Gunboat’s concepts has been to simplify sailing at speed. Utilizing forward-thinking design and modern materials, sailing a yacht like SUNSHINE is easy and enjoyable. Every guest has left with a smile from ear to ear after a try at the wheel. The headsail is self-tacking, and the mainsheet is hydraulic. To tack the boat, simply turn the wheel. At the helm the captain has a clear, unobstructed 360-degree view of the surroundings. There are a number of lounge areas for guests, both inside and outside. Interior accommodations and joinery details rival some of Europe’s finest builders.
SUNSHINE is the owner’s second Gunboat. Desiring superyacht luxury and space, but not wanting the operating costs of a half-dozen crew, a larger Gunboat made sense. After all, if a 62-foot Gunboat could be sailed by one, then surely the same concept could be applied to a 90-foot design. In simple terms, SUNSHINE is the ultimate luxury performance sailing yacht. Behind the beautiful appointments are some of the most advanced construction techniques, sail handling, electrical management and cutting-edge entertainment systems available today.
