GT35-01 - Commissioned and Handed Over. 11/04/2014

The end of the beginning..! Tuesday 8th April 2014 saw the commissioning of GT Yachts' first yacht, GT35-01. On a day which saw gusts over 35 knots on the River Orwell, the GT35 seemed to very much enjoy its maiden voyage. Dry with sunny spells and plenty of wind, it was a perfect trial. On board was Stephen Jones who was pleased with the performance and very happy with the single finger helm control! Some final rig tweaks from Fox's Rigging and Dolphin Sails and the yacht was ready for handover.

The following day was also perfect. The wind dropped off but the blue skies meant that the yacht was shown at her best for the photo shoot. Graham Snook was on board for the Yachting Monthly test report but as is necessary, he kept his cards close to his chest.

GT Yachts is now carrying out demo sails for some interested parties and of course we will be at Shotley Marina New Boat Weekend at the end of the month so please come and see this stunning yacht for yourself.
