I am the happy owner of a Gib'Sea
302, built in 1994.
had a reputation for building sturdy boats. From my experience, this is true.
From my book on second-hand boats, the Gib'Sea
402 has been designed by Joubert-Nivelt (80 boats built from 1986 to 1990). It is suitable for racing
as well as for cruising.
The dimensions are:
There were 2 keel
- 7.7t (ballast 2.85t), 1.5m draught
- 7.5t (ballast 2.69t), 2m draught
There were 2 rig versions, one with a lengthened mast
On the standard version, the mainsail
is 37.05 sq m and the genoa
55.45 sq m.
The British owner of another Gib'Sea told me that the owner association isn't really active.
