Sailplan

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.

This particular yacht was bought new in 2002 with some changes to the standard specification to suit a partially disabled owner. These included the fitting a a deck plate for a hoist mechanism, replacement of the standard companionway steps with custom-made removable solid teak steps, no boarding ladder on the transom and modification of the pushpit and aft guardwires. The present owner has since had a stern ladder made to replace the missing one and made some other minor changes to revert the boat to a similar spec to a standard boat. The teak companionway steps are still as fitted.

Accommodation plan
Saloon aft

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.

Engine

The 21 bhp Nanni diesel was one of the original engine options for the Gib'Sea 33 - these engines
are based on Kubota industrial diesels hence routine spares are readily available and cheaper than
typical Volvo or Yanmar marine diesel spares.

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.

in 2018 but does not have a copy.
