2014 Gunboat 55 (55ft)

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.
