I'm a potential GB customer and have been gathering a list of the boats they've built and when so I can keep track of what's available and how they're doing. Seems there are some GB insiders here so if anybody can fill in the blanks, I'd appreciate it. My list is below but there isn't much info out there about the 48s, and I think I'm missing a couple boats judging by GB's count of how many they've produced. Anybody have corrections or more info?

Looks like you have more knowledge than the insiders!

Mayhem was Suggar Daddy/ Panthera. After touching in Bahamas owner thought Mayhem was a bad name so renamed her Panthera.

Thanks. That clears up a lot of issues. The only real anomaly left is the number of boats built. I think GB says 31 or 32 launched but I only have 29.

So, here's the updated list. I added the Elvis refit, Irens definitely did the 78, lots of ex-names (boatdb confirms Falcor was Hammer), and I went with all the hull numbers and info from soma. Thanks again, list should be pretty complete other than a few missing boats, and they'd have to be 48s.

Who knows but with two posts I wouldn't be giving him the benefit of the doubt. A trainspotter wants to know where the old trains are but the guy who buys new trains doesn't care .... Just sayin'

Nope, sorry guys. Not an investor or lawyer. It's probably taken me a couple years to put that list together as I came across information. Just a future buyer. I don't care that Rainmaker was abandoned, the G4 flipped, or that they filed I posted now hoping all the people reading about GB here could help me finish my list.

I can't see me waiting 3 years for delivery, or even 1 year. I'll probably buy used, but we'll see.

I kinda misspoke about the 2nd g4. Launches in March. Not quite "imminent".

I think the 90 is a good boat. Just needs a good price. 7 digits would be fair. Not 8.

There was the controversial gb36(?). Someone built a little shitter that PJ disowned. It was never officially a GB. I think it was began with unofficial, tacit approval from Peter. Once he saw it he wouldn't back it. That's ancient history now though. Moot point. Maybe a sore subject.

The only M&M boats officially for sale are the 48 & 90 but there are others that aren't officially for sale but are for sale, or will be for sale, or would be if a serious buyer is looking. So...there are multiple options.
Is this the diswoned boat Soma mentions: http://www.yachtworld.com/boats/2004/Island-Hopper-37-Catamaran-2855542/Miami/FL/United-States#.VlCxcr_Sw3k

The ad claims: "originally conceived to be the first Gunboat Catamaran"...that seems a time discountinuity given it was launched in 2004
