I like Gib Sea a lot.

I don't know the 442, but one of my best freinds has a 414, that was built in the early to mid 90's. That is one fast boat...get some good sails and it beats most anything..

He went twice from Lisbon to Cuba with it, and has won many races too.. Its a Rob Humphreys design, a very very fast boat...sails like a charm...its not a beginners boat.

I like Gib Sea, probably the best French yard...well built, solid, good solid wood inside, large beams, but not too spacious inside, as the cabins are normally narrow. Good berths, but lower than normal. Slightly dark inside.

These boats keep a good value, despite the years, for an European boat..Its like a Moody, or near...

I think the 442 being older waqs designed by a French guy (I think he retired, not sure) called....Jounot..Joubot...forgot his name....screw him...he's French...

So quality boat indeed.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Joubert.

Nice boats. Probably a bit racey for a tired old wombat like me but a nice bit of kit nonetheless.
