Length: 18m Engine/Fuel Type: /
The GForce 18C is the flagship of the GForce range. She retains most of what makes the 15C special, yet expands it into a larger and more spacious package. Her lines are aggressive yet refined and as a platform she lends herself well to a variety of missions; be it a stunning long legged world cruiser or a luxury crewed charter vessel with more than just a pulse. At 60 Feet, she is still manageable by a couple, yet make no mistake, she is a lot of boat! The first of her series was launched last year in Australia and she has performed above expectations and by all accounts is turning out to be a remarkable yacht. We are able to customize the interior layouts to a fairly wide degree to suit your mission and we have a few interesting innovations planned for this design in particular. Our standard equipment specification for her is based on years of not just high performance yacht construction, but also real world cruising in very remote locations, and is, we believe, one of the best available standard specs around today. So if you are in the market for a comfortable high performance yacht of very high specification and extremely robust construction in foam / epoxy with CE certification
and at a very competitive price, we think you’ve found her.
