2014 Gunboat 55

55 ft

A proven performer designed for fast family cruising; VANDAL offers her next
owner the best owner-operator performance cruising platform ever built. 
VANDAL features an unmatched combination of easy single-handed sailing, true
Gunboat high-performance speed and agility, and the latest in elegant luxury and
bold style. Whether tearing down the bay with family and friends, or settling in
for a 250+ mile/day Pacific crossing, VANDAL is the fun and confidence-inspiring
adventure platform you have been searching for.
Built in the USA, VANDAL was born to sail long distances quickly and safely, and
to be the ultimate entertainment and adventure platform upon arrival.  Her
revolutionary cockpit – galley – salon area seamlessly integrates sailing and
living into one large, protected, light-filled experience, where one can trim
and douse sails in weather.  Her airy, social, galley-up design makes serving
pina coladas, hanging with friends and loved ones, and meal prep a pleasure,
ensuring she is the life of the party in every beautiful anchorage she finds. In
the port aft hull there is her extensive pantry storage and additional
full-height fridge and freezer to keep the crew well-nourished before retiring
to the three generous and boldly-styled queen+ staterooms to rest up for the
next day’s adventures.
In addition to her Gunboat pedigree, VANDAL sports significant post-construction
upgrades to her reinforced rig, improved bearing and tie bar steering, and solar
power array.  These substantial improvements, undertaken with Gunboat at Newport
Shipyard, incorporated the best practices and hard-won knowledge of 20 years of
Gunboat owners and crew to create an intelligent, bullet-proof, blue water
performance cruiser unlike anything on the market.
VANDAL is ready for her next adventure!
