Gib'sea 76

I am looking to purchase a gib'sea 76. I was wondering if anyone had any experience on these boats. Opinion- good or bad?

We looked over one before SWMBO upped the budget and we bought the Moody. The idea was it just came within the towing limit therefore could be bought home for the winter.

Nice French styling/detail and quality looked good, would be happy to take one cross English Channel, coastal type cruising. Most of the UK ones seem to have lifting keels which would have been an advantage for us. Think Gibsea were taken over by Dufour. Later versions were 262 and 282. Next size up but same age was the 84 and 96.
