One of Specmar’s latest
and most ambitious crea-
tions is a just-launched
new 42’-8” LOA, 15’-10”
beam, foil-assisted cata-
maran, the
Gravel Gerty
(photo previous page).
Gerty
will operate as a day
tour boat on the Colorado
River from Laughlin, Ne-
vada to lake Havasu. Dur-
ing her sea trials,
Gravel
Gerty
attained 45 knots.
She is very stable and
leans nicely into the turns.
A shallow-draft, asymmet-
rical cat,
Gravel Gerty
is
powered by twin Scania
DI12 650-hp diesels, with
Hamilton 322 water jets.
In the light condition, she
displaces 24,000 pounds.
