Extreme H2O is the lightest, fastest Gunboat 66 available today. 

The boat features all the state of the art performance enhancements:

-  a fully integrated hybrid system, with retractable propeller drives

-  push button State-of-the-art Morrelli & Melvin asymmetric "C” foils and “T” rudders

- Southern Spars rotating wing spar, aft beam traveler, tiller steering for racing, mainsheet controls at all steering stations and a powerful sail plan, with a full inventory of high performance sails - makes “H2O” an extremely fast catamaran, setting the bar for performance racing/cruising catamarans - worldwide. 

 Speed and performance do not sacrifice the luxury features of this cruising catamaran - which can realize up to 30 knot sailing speeds.

The fully integrated hybrid system will allow you to depart the dock, enjoy a day of sailing and return to the dock without ever having to listen to a diesel motor. Better yet, you can enjoy a tropical night at anchorage with 30,000 BTU of air-conditioning without the noise of a generator.  

Design Philosophy 

“Extreme H2O” is arguably one of the highest performance cruising catamaran,worldwide. A product of the Morrelli & Melvin Design & Engineering design office, “H2O” was optimized for performance throughout a wide range of wind conditions.

This powerful sail plan is managed with advanced sail handling systems in both the forward cockpit with 4 high speed hydraulically driven winches and at all steering stations with push button mainsail

 Design evolution:  

Morrelli & Melvin's designed the “C” foils to provide up to 4,000 kg of vertical lift and the “T” rudder to reduce pitching when the wave angle is forward of the beam. The “T”” foils are removable while boat is in the water so the boat can be easily configured for optimum speed and comfort.  

Construction:

“Extreme H2O” began construction in South Africa by Gunboat. After the Gunboat closed its doors, the boat was moved to the US and completed by Westerly Marine - a custom boat builder, founded in 1970, and located in Santa Anna, California - specializing in Carbon Fiber Performance Vessels. Over 56,000 hours were required to complete the boat to certified standards. 

Hulls: Carbon inner skin and outer skin / 25mm Corcell Sandwich 

Cabin: Carbon inner and outer skin / Nomex honeycomb and Corcell sandwich

Cabin soles: Carbon / Nomex honeycomb sandwich 

All secondary taping Carbon fiber / Epoxy and post cured 

All laminates vacuum-bagged and post cured.

Energy Efficiency:

All of Extreme H2O power requirements such as refrigeration, instrumentation, lighting, winches are run easily run from the battery bank. The large inverters allow use of Aircon throughout the night without the use of generators. The boat has a battery operated powering range of 45 minutes without the use of generators.





Our firm (Morrelli & Melvin) was responsible for the design of all the early Gunboats (the GB48, GB62, GB66 and GB90 designs). These are the designs that established Gunboat’s reputation. We have also been closely involved with the continuing support and design improvements on these boats, for the last 10 years. As such, we know the boats very well. This is the case with "Extreme H2O", as well – having been involved in her design, her build and ongoing improvements. As such, we are very qualified to speak to her history, characteristics, and capabilities (as with any of the original Gunboat designs). A viewing of our company web site (www.morrellimelvin.com) will provide background on the performance pedigree that went into this design (world ocean record setters such as “Playstation”, America’s Cup defenders, such as “Stars & Stripes”), and those which have followed (subsequent Americas Cup challengers and defenders, Olympic class designs, etc). “Extreme H2O” comes from this world renown performance stable. 

We would look forward to introducing you to this vessel. So please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions on the boat - her design, build, history, etc.
