Overview

Jazz Marine in South Africa manufactured the first four Gunboats between 2000 and 2004. Launched as Icon and subsequently Elvis, Mach Schnell is the last hull produced in the series. Under Elvis ownership, a new Southern Spars mast was commissioned increasing the height by 6 meters up to 28 meters. This has become the standard for high performance production multi hulls. The boat also went through a performance optimization period where they “de-bugged” the boat eliminating some inefficiencies experienced in racing thereby making the boat bullet proof. This performance optimization and high investment philosophy has continued through the current ownership and the boat continues to excel on the race course.

Updates

In the summer of 2019, every electrical wire was removed and replaced with all aircraft-grade wiring. New Czone, hull paint, deck paint, under waterline removed by sandblasting, filled & faired, cut out and reinforced pit deck, stiffened compression post. (Deck reinforcement stiffened to be future-proofed to accept Harken 1111’s if ever required)
