Gibsea 33

Gibert Marine was founded in 1972, initially as a builder of small keelboats. They soon progressed to being a major builder of cruising-orientated yachts. Gib'Seas have always featured simply fitted but very practical interiors, on well built hulls.

By the mid 1990s the company was struggling to compete as an independent builder with the larger and more highly automated productions of Beneteau, and Gibert Marine were taken over by Dufour, who continued to produce yachts under the Gib'Sea name. These "Dufour" Gib'Seas continued to follow the theme of simple open interiors.

The Gib'Sea 33 was designed by Olivier Poncin and J & J design, and shares the distinctive styling of several other larger models, including a 37 and 43. These boats all share the "delphinière" - a dolphin nose shaped mini-bowsprit that continues the deck line outboard to house a self-stowing anchor. The Gib'Sea 33 has a substantial masthead rig with a relatively small headsail, sheeted well inboard to the coachroof sides.

The saloon feels larger than you would expect on a yacht that is under 33 ft in length, the feeling of space being accentuated by the open shelving above the saloon settees rather than lockers.

Photographs Yachtsnet

The small bowsprit that Gib'Sea call a delphinière is actually a very practical way of integrating anchor stowage into the deck and anchor well, whilst reducing the chance of the anchor hitting the bows when being raised or lowered.
