General Details

The Gib'Sea 43 has been awarded the Cruising Worlds Boat of the Year Award for Best Production Boat for the year 2001. This did not happen accidentally as the Dufour Gib'Sea series was designed and developed after extensive consultation with boat buyers and users around the world. Uncluttered space, light and airy interiors finished in fine teak, volume and more volume, superior headroom throughout, defined and accessible vital technical access, along with superb engine access are built into the Gib'Sea models.

This boat has only 300 hours as it was never in a charter fleet. In mast furling, cloth upholstery and upgraded electronics are also an advantage to being a private boat. She is conveniently located in tropical Key West and ready for you to start your sailing dream or vacation home.
