Re: Pictures of your boat
It's actually a French boat. Gib Sea 33 made by Dufour. Nice looking yes and comfortable/roomy below and in the cockpit, but is under-powered and rounds up quick. The research I've done suggests it was designed as a charter boat in the Med and some were brought out here for the same reason. Mine is ex charter. GF
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"
