Not for sale or charter to U.S. residents while in U.S. waters.
Launched in late 2016, the Gunboat 78 MY CAT is a state-of-the-art 77’78 (23.77m) sailing catamaran built for high speed and elite performance while maintaining all the creature comforts of a luxury yacht. She can reach speeds of up to 30 knots thanks to her lightweight construction in carbon fiber and full carbon rig.
Straight from the drawing boards of Nigel Irens Designs, her striking profile makes her one of the most stand-out catamarans on the water today. MY CAT’s reverse bows, aggressive chine and sheer-line result in a beautiful catamaran, further complimented by her huge bowsprit forward and a metallic blue paint job.
Impressively, MY CAT has been designed with hydraulically retractable daggerboards and rudders. These carbon foils improve performance and stability, making her incredibly seaworthy and effortlessly quick. When fully down, her draft reaches a depth of 3.35 meters but when up, her draft is only 1.3 meters, allowing access to even the shallowest bays and harbors.
MY CAT’s exterior deck spaces are well maintained and perfect for watching the ocean glide by, from her completely shaded aft deck to her foredeck with trampolines. Aft, guests will find the extended carbon coach-roof adequate protection from the weather, but should elements dictate, there are removable plasti-glass side panels that can provide additional protection. To port, the extendable carbon dining table can seat up to 10, while the lounging area to starboard is one of the most popular spots onboard to relax.
In addition, both of MY CAT’s transoms have been extended to create a larger area for swimmers entering and leaving the water as well as safer boarding. The dive bottles are arms reach away along with a dive compressor in the aft deck locker. Her tender is easily launched from two carbon davits between the two hulls.
Though designed for high performance and ocean crossings, MY CAT’s interior spaces have kept luxury living in mind. The spacious salon is bright and open with 360-degree panoramic views connecting guests to the ocean and located to starboard is a dining table comfortably sitting eight. Located centrally and forward is the helm station, affording good views of the jib tell-tales and the main sail trim above through an electrically sliding hatch. Comfortable lounging sofas aft and to port surround a 50” flatscreen television aft of the helm station. A low coffee table opens to a well-stocked bar and wine fridge.
MY CAT can comfortably accommodate eight guests across four cabins with en-suites, with additional berths for up to three crew. Her owner’s cabin is located port-side aft with a large double bed athwartships and en-suite. Her three guest cabins include a VIP cabin starboard aft with large double bed, also athwartships; a double mid-ships to port with bunk fore-aft, and two twin guest cabins forward port with bunks.
As the only Gunboat 78 in existence, MY CAT is an ideal world-cruiser built for high performance, stability and total comfort. She would be equally perfect for exploring the world’s oceans or collecting silverware on the international regatta circuit.

Built in 2015 and launched in 2016, this Nigel Irens design is still one of the most striking on the water today. MY CAT’s reverse bows, aggressive chine, and sheer-line result in an awesome-looking catamaran, further complimented by the huge bowsprit forward and a metallic blue paint job.
MY CAT’s aft deck is completely shaded from the elements thanks to the extended carbon coach-roof. There are removable plasti-glass side panels that can provide even more protection if conditions dictate.
The extendable carbon dining table on the port side can sit up to 10 guests while the lounging area on the starboard side is among the most popular spots onboard to kick back and relax.
There are two ice makers aft depending on whether your sundowner of choice requires chipped ice or cubes!
MY CAT’s foredeck is another great area to relax and catch the sun. The vast trampolines are both comfy and an amazing spot to watch the ocean glide by.
Both transoms have been extended to create a larger area for swimmers entering and leaving the water. The dive bottles are at arm's reach away and there is a dive compressor in the aft deck locker. MY CAT’s tender is easily launched from two carbon davits between the two hulls. The extended transoms also make for safer boarding.

Main Salon/Dining Area:
The spacious saloon is bright and open with 360 deg panoramic views connecting you to the ocean.
The helm station is located centrally and forward affording good views of the jib tell-tales and the main sail trim above through an electrically sliding hatch. With the Recaro-like carbon framed seats, it is more akin to a rally car.
There is a navigation area forward to starboard that houses many of MY CAT's control systems. C-Zone monitors and controls most of the yacht's systems while a separate hydraulic system controls winches, rams, etc.
There is a huge amount of redundancy built in.
The starboard side of the saloon has a dining table that comfortably sits eight guests.
There are comfortable lounging sofas aft and to port with a 50” flatscreen on the aft side of the helm station.
The low coffee table opens up to a well-stocked bar which compliments the wine fridge by the navigation area.
Descending from the saloon down the starboard-forward steps we first come to a service area with a top-loading fridge, worktop space, and storage locker for cups and glasses above.
Ahead of this, there is a bright and clean galley with oak veneer, white Corian countertops, and steel paneled appliances, including a Miele dishwasher, Bosch oven, microwave, extractor, and a 4-hob induction cooker.
Ahead of the galley is the crew area with a table, two comfortable chairs, 32” TV. There is ample storage here as well as the Miele Washer-Drier. There are also a number of system screens and panels to allow monitoring and control of the ship's systems.
MY CAT’s owner cabin is located port-side aft. It is a mirror image of the starboard-side aft except with better AV and some personal touches. Large double bed athwartships. Ensuite bathroom with shower cubicle.
