TRAVERSE is one of only six Gunboat 48’s ever built. Rarely do these unicorn’s come to market. Designed for short handed sailing, the 48′ is truly the only Gunboat designed with a cruising couple or family in mind. Traverse is the most highly appointed 48′ afloat. Her current owner, a notable Yachtsman, took a different approach when setting out to refit Traverse. The refit brief was for a “sabbatical cruiser” allowing exquisite comfort for extended periods living aboard. She is a race ready world cruiser  capable of 300 mile days in extreme comfort. As Toby Hodges stated in his review of Gazelle, a Gunboat 66, she is ” a Winnebago that transforms into a supercar”. TRAVERSE is currently lying in Fort Lauderdale, FL available for immediate showings.
