Sailing Catamaran Crowther 50 ‘Top Gun’
Top Gun is an easy to sail, safe and fast catamaran that will easily average high speeds safely due to her long slender hulls, lightweight and the proven design of her big powerful bows.
Top Gun is one of Australia’s most well known and fastest offshore racing, come short term cruising catamarans. She has won most of Australia’s and Asias offshore races over a stellar career. She has set a number of race records along the way. Professionally built in foam, kevlar and epoxy glass, Top Gun’s design and success is proven over the years. Since her launch she is still in the same design configuration without needing any design modifications except recent longer dagger boards and rudders to handle her increased speeds due to upgraded sails and sail area.
She received a complete and comprehensive refit from 2017 and completed the last bits in 2020. The refit included new carbon dagger boards, carbon easy glide up and down dagger cases, deeper carbon rudders and a new direct steering system. All new carbon and laminate sails, new high grade running and standing rigging, mast refitted, new Selden boom, winch upgrade to all sheet and halyard to Andersen electric. All new Profurl and selden furling systems, completely rewired, new solar and lithium done professionally by Barrenjoey Marine Electrics in 2019.
A new single engine mounted centrally in the cockpit pod, new spectra nets in 2017 and recently turned over and restrung. Electric anchor winch fitted the list goes on.
