2014 Top Gun is one of Lock Crowther's finest racing catamaran designs. A record holding 50 footer that only weighs in at a bit over 4.5 tons.
Top Gun Catamaran Racing is about a 50 foot high performance racing catamaran that has proven to be one of Australia's fastest Ocean Racing Catamarans. She is the current record holder of the Hong Kong to SanFernando race and Townsville to Cairns race, with an amazing average speed of 17 knots. Top Gun is arguably one of Lock Crowther's finest racing designs. She is a relatively light weight Ocean racer that was built in 1988 using foam sandwich construction of unidirectional Eglass, Kevlar and Epoxy Resins. Strong yet relatively light she is a force in Australian multihull racing despite her 20 plus year age. The Gun has a current OMR rating of just under 1.100. her home port is Sydney's Pittwater. During December 2014 she will be fitted out with a new sail wardrobe from Ben Kelly at Quantum. Enjoyed by many that have sailed on her both locally and internationally she will continue to be developed and sailed hard in many of Australia's East Coast races.
