Island Gypsy will also be displaying the current models and unveiling for the first time to the public the versatile new the two-cabin version of the Island Gypsy Newport 46. Also available for interested parties are the specs for the all-new 40-foot model, arriving in mid-December.

“It’s a brand-new design,” explains Director, Brett Flanagan. “We have used new moulds and the latest construction using vinylester resins. We already have considerable interest in the 40-footer, which will be perfect for families and couples looking for a fantastic weekender or dayboat.”

The Island Gypsy 40 features twin cabins and a convertible bed in the saloon, with accommodation for up to six guests. It boasts a generous sized cockpit and foredeck, as well as a spacious saloon for easy entertaining.

It uses a diesel shaft drive with keel protection, upgraded bow and stern thrusters, complete with full navigation package, generator and luxurious, 5-star fitout with gloss walnut finish, Corian benchtops, well-appointed galley, teak cockpit and Sunbrella fabric seating.

As a Sizzling Summer price-point for a limited time, the new Island Gypsy 40 will be offered at $AUD599,000.

The Island Gypsy 46 with the two-cabin layout will be available for inspection during the boating festival. It suits cruising families seeking an economical and feature-filled motor yacht.

At 14m it’s the same LOA as the first two Newport models. Still, the space below decks has been expertly optimised to accommodate a second cabin, with large ensuite in common, including separate shower, toilet and vanity. 

Powered by a 550hp Cummins diesel engine and Onan generator, coupled to a Twin Disc 2.1 gearbox and running through the new technology “Python drive” system which has been specially designed for this range of boats. The new model requires minimal maintenance and delivers a sensational performance of 20+ knots, along with class-leading fuel economy.

For ease of access for the tender and watersports, there is also a hi-lo hydraulic swim platform.

Currently at the planning stage are all-new 48ft sedan and flybridge models, designed with two-cabins, two-bathrooms, single or twin-powered and with a class-leading beam of just under 15ft. | Brett Flanagan | | 0414 997 654.
