"Gallivanter" is one of the newest MAT 1180 build's and benefits from the experience gained throughout the MAT's lifespan to produce the most competitive all round package out there.
This design is a dual-purpose inshore/offshore machine, with a plug and play setup on offer when switching between the two disciplines.
Important upgrades in the rig and hardware department give "Gallivanter" an edge over others on the market and coupled with subtle tweaks to displacement and foil design during the build, she is the best 1180 on the market today by some margin!


The MAT1180 is an exciting next-generation IRC race boat design which is the product of a long and careful design, engineering, and development process initiated by long term clients Alp and Cem Somer of MAT. Mills Design and MAT have worked together very successfully in the past on the MAT1245, MAT1010 and now MAT1180 IRC designs.

Research work began in early 2014 with our R&D partners KND Sailing Performance, a specialist firm leading the field in CFD and VPP performance prediction of high performance yachts. After a CFD program covering more than 20 hulls we produced a powerful hull shape that offers low drag when upright in light airs with increasing stability as the hull form immerses with heel in stronger winds. This increase in form stability allows a lighter overall displacement ensuring high performance off wind and in light airs.
