G-Force 1500C 'IMMAGINA' Makes Lightning Delivery

G-Force 1500C 'IMMAGINA' has recently completed her maiden ocean voyage and delivery, and owner Donato was extremely happy with her performance. He writes:

"I have sailed 'Immagina', a G-Force 1500C, from Cape Town to Grenada - 6,500 Nm across the Atlantic. She sailed wonderfully throughout! We had south easterly winds that ranged from 10 Kts to 40 Kts, mostly 15 Kts to 25 Kts. With the Code 0 hoisted..."

G-Force 1400 'WAHOO' Crushes Competition

The G-Force 1400 'WAHOO' has recently competed in the Newport to Ensenada Yacht Race, crushing the competition and winning their multihull division. The owner Bill Gibbs has written a report on the race and also how he came to own 'WAHOO'. "First in our Newport to Ensenada multihull class, including a 125nm match race against a Gunboat 62 which we beat boat-for-boat and on handicap." 

Read more on this awesome achievement as well as some pictures of the crew with their hard-earned trophy. Well done to the skipper and crew, we hope to see more from 'WAHOO' in the not too distant future!

G-Force 1200 'HUEY' Launched in Adelaide

A big congratulations to home builder Greg Hettner who has recently launched his beautiful G-Force 1200 named 'HUEY' in Adelaide, Australia. With help from his son Sean, the Hettner team have done a fantastic job and the mast and rigging was recently installed with 'HUEY' taking her first test sail! We're sure to see more from this pocket rocket in the months to come, as Greg and Sean hope to get her out sailing as much as possible. 

The G-Force 1200 was built using a pre-cut Duflex kit, resulting in a lightweight, strong, stiff performance catamaran that looks great and will perform beyond expectations. For more information on the G-Force 1200 design, see the design page here. Well done Greg and Sean!

G-Force 1700C 'WILDFIRE' Launches

After over 5 years of hard work and dedication, Clint and Gaye Jennings have launched their beautiful and unique G-Force 1700C 'WILDFIRE'! She certainly lives up to her name with an eye-catching exterior paint job and a very distinctive style that differs from her G-Force sisters. The interior and finishes will be just as exquisite as the exterior, and we cannot wait for the finishing touches to go on. During the build of this boat Clint and Gaye also became close friends of Jeff and Lorraine, as well as very enthusiastic Schionning supporters and we thank them for their ongoing effort over the past years and we can't wait to see them enjoying WILDFIRE on the water in some beautiful cruising destinations. For more information on the G-Force 1700C design, plus a photo gallery (updated as much as possible) see the design portfolio here. There is also a Facebook page following the boat's progress here.

Current Marine Launches Second Arrow 1200

Current Marine in Knysna, South Africa have been hard at work on their second Arrow 1200 which has recently hit the water and is floating light on her lines. Recently launched 'DACHA' impressed many with her speed and sailing ability during her delivery, and we're sure to expect the same from this new addition. She is floating light although loaded with 250kg of fuel and water at the time and of course she is yet to be fitted with rigging, mast and sails. The Arrow 1200 designs are steadily becoming known for their simplicity of construction (100% flat panel kits), comfortable accommodation and exciting performance. 

For more information on the Arrow 1200 design, and to see more photos of the recent launch including interior shots, see the design portfolio here.
