Nice.. we get some Gibseas around here but the trim/finish is a bit different... thought she looked a bit 'Bene-esque' so the French heritage makes sense...

Just to keep this thread going...

Brazilian built 'Fast' 345 (Ron Holland, orignally sold as Nicholson 345)

1984 Fast/Nicholson 345 "FastForward"
