Kanter Marine 54 launches with GMT PowerFurl rig

Kanter Marine 54 launches with GMT PowerFurl rig

Kanter Marine has launched their newest sailboat, a 54’ custom aluminum hulled pilot house cutter with a GMT carbon mast and PowerFurl boom. Sea trials were conducted in Canada with 18-20 knots of blustery fall winds to great success. Built for a repeat client, she is the owner's ultimate offshore vessel. The owner commented after the sea trials, “In retrospect, having 18 - 20 kts true was just what the doctor ordered. The new Lass stood up to the breeze and behaved very well”.

GMT Partners with Yellowfin Custom Yachts

GMT Carbon Ladder & Yellowfin 40' RIB Tender

GMT Partners with Yellowfin Custom Yachts

GMT Composites has partnered with Yellowfin Custom Yachts in developing a carbon fiber boarding system for their 40' RIB superyacht tender. The challenge with RIBs of this size is assuring that boarding is easy and safe for the passenger due to the large diameter and height of the tube. The additional challenge, as with all things superyacht, is that the design and finish must meet the highest standards. This also needed to be a modular design to break down for storage within the RIB with a maximum height of only 14".
