Broker's Comments

A modern styled fast family cruiser with good accommodation and sailing performance, the Gib'Sea 84 was typical of the wave of French boats built during the 80's and 90's to compete with the established British classes.

Above decks she feels solid and safe, with all lines leading aft into the cockpit leaving clear sidedecks and foredeck.

Below she is light, spacious and comfortable. With two cabins she sleeps 4 without the inconvenience of saloon bunking, ideal for two couples or a family

This particular example has obviously been loved and cared for in her lifetime. The current owner is maintaining her well, the varnish and upholstery look lovely and mechanically and electrically she has had numerous upgrades and plenty of money spent!

And she's good looking (as french ladies often are)! What more could you ask for?
