Even at the first presentation of the smaller sister GT5 (test YACHT 8/2017), the yacht builders in the hinterland of Slovenia were thinking out loud about expanding their new premium program with a larger boat. Now hull number one of the new flagship GT6 is ready and sailing. And how it does it: In the exclusive test in Slovenia with only moderate wind conditions, the voluminous tourer sometimes shines with very good and agile sailing characteristics. And, thanks to the well-planned cockpit layout, handling is easy even for a small crew.
The features of the new GT line: modern and voluminous hulls, luxurious interior fittings, sporty basic orientation, upscale deck equipment - Gran Turismo (GT) stop. For the visual design of their new 47-footer, the shipyard sought cooperation with the stylists in Studio F. A. Porsche. Their handwriting is clearly recognizable in various areas on and below deck. Of course, the construction comes from the Humphreys Yacht Design office in England.
The extensive test report will appear in the next issue of YACHT, issue 21/2020. Below and in advance the photos of the trial fitting in the bay of Piran as a gallery to click through
