Yacht "Gonta"

Gonta crew

On 31 of October, 1981, in Kiev Cruising Yacht-Club (Ukraine) the yacht “Gonta” was launched. It took the crew three years and three months to build the boat. That included not just the hull and deck only but each and every piece of hardware too.
Ballast keel, rudder, mast, blocks, winches – you name it - all were made by us.


Since that day onward “Gonta” is a familiar sight on many competitions,
domestic and international alike.
