About this Gunfleet 43


We are delighted to offer to the market "Active Day", a superbly equipped one owner example of the Gunfleet 43, considered by many to be the "Rolls Royce" of the Ocean. 

Conceived as a brand in 2009/2010, Gunfleet have quickly established themselves as a Premium UK Production outfit. Their founder Richard Matthews spent 35 years involved with Oyster Yachts before selling in 2008 and has continued the high end tradition in his new Company.

Being the first of the Gunfleet line, meticulous attention was paid to Active Day's construction and finish, her specification including many upgrades from the standard specification.

Her current owner, who is a highly experienced yacht owner, took delivery of her in summer 2013 and has used her for Channel cruising.  Whilst having true blue water capabilities, the design is equally adept at short hops and marina stays due to her supreme internal comforts.The yacht has been kept to an impeccable standard and viewing is strongly recommended. We believe her to be exceptional in every aspect.

Now located at Swanwick Marina and available for immediate viewing.
