Phaedo launched at the end of 2010. The owner and captain went through the boat from stem to stern to seek out, analyse, improve, and invent many new features and technology looking into the past and bringing some of the old Gunboats unique features through and adding some new ones that have now become the standard on Gunboats in the future, a big evolutionary step forward. By a large margin this is the most aggressively built Gunboat, chasing the power to weight ratio, with top speed as the goal. The unique black taffeta carbon fusion sails are hoisted on a High Modulus rig, containing carbon battens and supported by PBO rigging.
