The Cat


The GC54 OPEN has evolved as a result of weakening world-wide economic conditions. We have revisited our line of successful 54’ day charter catamarans to reduce cost everywhere possible while maintaining the basic Gold Coast Yachts passenger-friendly (and safe) layout as well as the structural and mechanical integrity for which we’re known. We’ve combined the best of the latest in hull infusion technology (because it does cost less) and vacuum-bagged deck plates (because it costs the same but makes a better product) and replaced the all composite structure and amenities with the material and processes on which our early reputation was built. Douglas fir! Stronger, durable and typically weighing less than many standard glass components Douglas fir has proven itself over time to be a cost effective functional material.

Designed for maximum guest space at the lowest cost, the GC54 OPEN features 39” underwing clearance, two head compartments with sink and toilets, U-shaped bar for food and beverage service, contoured fiberglass bench seating and a single level walk-around wet deck with fixed canopy roof. The number of amenities and mechanical items that can be added is totally up to your budget.
