SALE PENDING Gozzard 41RC 2017 Factory Demonstrator

    Brand new for 2017, the Gozzard 41RC is finally a reality. Years in the planning and building, it represents our most current thinking in terms design, concept and construction.

    This all new boat features industry leading developments in our already renowned structure which is highlighted by our composite chain plate technology. The hull and deck are vacuum infused using Vinyl-ester resin and Corecell A500 core is used throughout. The advanced structure used in our chain plates includes web ties and a combination of E glass, carbon fiber and epoxy resin using wet bag and vacuum infusion processes that result in a structure not found on any boat in this size and price range.

    Our new Solent Cutter Rig for 2017 utilizes triple head stays, swept back spreaders and features a furler mounted Code Zero drifter/reacher for those light air days. The electric Selden furled Solent headsail is designed to optimize upwind performance and sheets inboard to a cockpit adjustable lead for improve pointing ability while the self tacking cutter staysail is perfect for the heavy air wind ranges.

    Our latest two person live aboard interior feature the new larger aft cabin with a master stateroom berth that is much larger than ever before. Enabled by the RC “Raised Cockpit” design we have created a slightly offset center line berth with full sitting headroom and with much easier access. The interior is more open, bigger and more comfortable than ever. The raised coach roof creates a vaulted ceiling amidships which affords tremendous visibility while below.

    This boat is special even for a Gozzard. Historically, every time we have build a new model… a demonstrator, they all get some pretty special treatment and features not available on the more production oriented sisters that follow and this one is no different. This concept was developed in 2010 and spent years maturing on the drawing board before we finally just had to build it. Make an appointment to come and see the finest boat we have ever built.
