Perfect for short-handed sailing
The cockpit and deck layout have been perfectly designed for easy, short-handed sailing, with sheets and traveller all within reach of the helmsman. There is excellent visibility from behind the ‘Flightdeck’ helm and the 43 provides a dry, comfortable ride. A unique feature is her flush aft deck, immediately behind the centre cockpit, effectively doubling the leisure space in warmer climes and perfect for relaxing and sunbathing.
Twin rudders with variable draft keel option
Fitted as standard with a 2.1m (6’9”) fin keel with lead bulb, a centreboard option is also available. This has the versatility of a shoal 1.38m (4’6”) bulb keel, within which is a centreboard drawing 2.7m (8’10”) when lowered for fantastic up-wind performance.
The Gunfleet 43 has twin rudders, giving an unbelievable degree of balance and control.
Spacious and luxurious accommodation
The 43 features a spacious, light and airy saloon with centreline table, bar area and two settees, which double as seaberths. The galley is practical and a joy to use with abundant stowage in soft-close drawers, integrated GN Espace cooker, a ‘water station’ sink and stainless steel front-opening fridge/freezer. The real wow factor has to be the owner’s cabin, which offers the sort of space you would normally only expect to find on a yacht over 50 feet.
