Arethusa is a Gunboat 60 like no other. She offers the ultimate multihull package and seamlessly combines luxury living with a high performance, easy-to-handle yacht. 

Gunboat is known for its stylish catamarans and they are highly regarded in the industry. Since inception, the Owner and Captain have carefully developed the standard GB60 package and strived to further refine their sailing experience – and it’s paid off.

The boat is carbon fiber and the build was scrutinised to maximize weight efficiency and performance. Modifications include a custom Hall Spars rig, two Harken 990 winches on the aft deck and a redesigned forward cockpit. Carbon interior features are finished with an ultra-light veneer and high-quality appliances were installed to maintain the luxury feel.

Since its commissioning in 2015, Arethusa has appreciated upgrades to further optimize comfort, performance and safety capabilities. The highlights of these are:


  • Symmetrical daggerboards 
  • Chainplate replacement
  • 30% larger fuel tanks 
  • VIP cabin upgrades from Queen to King-sized beds (plus extra storage space)
  • B&G upgrade, new Garmin screens and repeaters for aft trimming stations UMYG



  • Streamlined and upgraded hydraulic pack with a more powerful pump
  • Two new 12-inch Zeus 3S chart plotters


  • Custom titanium steering quadrants with new cassette rudders and upgraded steering system


  • J1 and traveller system upgrade and reinforcement



Arethusa has proved herself as an outstanding live aboard for extensive periods whilst cruising throughout New England, Caribbean, The Bahamas and New Zealand. She also has a minimum draught of 3.5ft making anchoring in beautiful, shallow waters hassle free.

Entertaining friends & family is effortless with its large aft deck lounge area, homely open plan dining and four spacious guest cabins. Those who have sailed her affectionately like to tell upon the stories of brunch and cocktails at 20 knots!

The boat can be quickly switched into regatta or delivery mode where 260-mile days are easily achievable. In the absence of wind, the twin 55HP Yanmar engines will motor comfortably at 9.5kts in flat water.

Kept in superb condition and meticulously maintained by professional crew; no expense has been spared to perfect the workings of this boat.
