Gibert Marine
Gib'Sea 372
Deep draft

To succeed to the Gib'Sea 105 and 106, Gibert Marine calls again the duo Joubert / Nivelt to design the Gib'Sea 372. The hull forms are more traditional with rounder sections and smaller rear forms. This gives to the Gib'Sea 372 a good balance and nice performance in light winds.

We notice also the increasing of the freeboard, due to the elimination of the raised bridge of the 106 and the will to improve interior space. Two sets of accommodations were available Standard resuming the layout of 106 with two aft cabins or Master giving priority to the proprietary aft cabin and toilet compartment.

No more ballasted centerboard version but a shoal draft (1.4m - 4.6ft) version more economical and efficient than the mobile appendage.
