TEST: The all-new G-Force 8
What happens if two brothers - who until recently have been involved in the construction, repair and sale of snow groomers - suddenly start building boats?
Gustav Morin from Hamnen.se is asking himself this when G-Force 8 is about to be tested. A boat that, according to the rumor, should be something completely extraordinary when it comes to both hull shape and technical solutions. The manufacturer does not boast about its objective either. The G-Force 8 should outrun both XO and Anytec as well as Viggo and other similar brands within the marine industry.
There are outstanding solutions on this vessel that the boating world has never seen before. Just take the door and window at the aft edge of the cabin which can be opened completely so that the rubber-suspended cabin and aft deck forms one large unit. Or take the interior layout. Or the 80s-inspired driver's seat. Then top it off with the specially designed step in the bow that should facilitate stepping off and on board from the bow.
"Give it what it can take"
The list of new and different grips is long, but the question is still whether it is not the handling characteristics that distinguish the boat the most. As the name suggests, G-Force 8 is a boat that can withstand great forces and even though Gustav Morin is an experienced boat tester, this is the first time he has been asked by the manufacturer to "give the boat what it can handle".
