Broker's Comments

This little Gibsea offers excellent sailing properties and reasonable accommodation for her size. Ideal for a couple for coastal and cross channel work and room for a couple of kids and a dog too! Little used in recent years, sadly, due to ill health. A little tlc would be welcome, esp below the waterline where layer upon layer of A/F paint has built up but this is merely cosmetic. All in all this is a good looking and well put together little ship and broad horizons await her new skipper!
